Just wanting to see what depth of water you fish this time of the year. Myself I have better luck fishing the upper end of lake's and reservoirs. The more wind the better for me. I like to target water from 1-10' deep on the windy days where the wind is crashing in on a bank. Making it even better is to have the wind blowing into a bank i'm wanting to fish for 3 to 4 days in a row. If it's churning the water up and has it stained i found most cats to be in the 1-3'range. If the wind is blowing only 5-10mph they will be out just a little deeper. Also i find making it better is if the bank has weeds or logs/stumps and debre along the bank. For weather ; i do better durning the early morning with cloudy skis and windy. Best bait for me when the water is mid 40's to upper 50's,shad guts,crappie guts,fresh cut shad. When water temp reaches 60's to mid 70's my bait of chocie is,nightcrawlers,shrimp,fresh cut shad. When water temp reaches upper 70's on up I do best with blood,shrimp soaked in blood,and punch baits.
