Just anchor up anywhere you think they might be and chuck out your bait!

I would fish with cutbait along inlet channels, since they serve as a highway for the cats to go from shallow to deep quickly during the day. if the lake you are fishing at is flooded, fish the back of the inlets along the flooded brush with cutbait like shad or bluegills, anything oily and nasty.

At night, shallow flats that are muddy and sandy would do the trick... look for structure or any place that may hold cats, like places where you would see crawdad activity. use cutbait or crawdads...

if you are fishing a main lake, I'd also cast live shad into the area of a school you see.... look for seagulls to help you hone in on the shad boil. throw the bait and let it sink below the school... cats feed upon the injured baitfish that hurt themselves in the chaos a few feet below the school....


hope that helps.

Dave I use to have good luck with cats on Bodecker a couple of years ago, have'nt been out there in those couple of years. Seemed to catch them while trolling for walleye, then I went onto Lonetree a better lake

You can also use two anchors so your boat doesn't spin around. Throw one off the back and get it set than drop another off the front just almost straight down.

Best way to set up for cats. Spot on Jay. This time of year cats are on the move constantly, dont stay in one place long and hit those inlets, and flats with steep drop offs

big shallow flats, drift some live bait or cut shad, shallow at night in 6ft or shallower!
