    My vote refers to flatheads. I know fishing for blues is better when it's cooler.

    I didn't vote, because of the big differences in temps from my personal experience. My 2 biggest fish from GA (both blues) came from completely different water temps. Water temps. in the 40's for one (Jan.), and the 80's the other (Aug.). In TN, I seem to catch bigger blues on average in the colder water temps. though.

    For GA, I am going to say 60-70 degrees. Up home I would go a little colder for the big ones, but these cats down here are kind of spoiled!
