Default Anyone fishing for Monster Cats?

Normally, I'm in the woods this time of year.

My Mama and Uncle sold the farm after my Dad passed.
One day before rifle opener so hunting
will need a break until I get back in a club or learn public land.

So, I'm wondering if anyone fishes for big cats this time of year in GA?

Late May and all of November are
my best months at Santee-Cooper. Been doing that
a while.

Never really "targeted" monster cats on a rod in Ga.
Have caught a few on lines and jugs, just not this time of year.

Prolly going to fish out the rest of this year and until deer season next year.

Oconee is about an hour from me.
That's doable. Anywhere within a couple of hours from Monroe
will work. I fish Varner but that's out because you can't camp.
Two or three day trip is what I want.

Anyone have any ideas what to use, where to go
and how to go about it this time of year?

I'd like to catch a few. Have everything for rod and reel, trot lines and jugs.
Wouldn't mind buying some wire for a few basket traps.
Two small boats. One 15' aluminum V and one plastic Bass Hunter.

What do ya'll think?

Many thanks!

If you get on youtube there are numerous videos on different ways. I want to try it on West Point as soon as i get some venison in freezer. They say Blues bite best thru winter.

3 day trip to Santee would be nice. The small ones there are like the big ones I get at Sinclair. Every trip to Santee someone will get atleast a 40 lb. Biggest Ive got in Ga is a 20.

Look up chad smith fishing guide service. He's great on Lake Oconee for cats. Your learn more in one day fishing with him than three doing it yourself.
