    Wow. Sorry to have to say I haven't hooped Cat since before the mlpa's.

    Time really flies.

    I must be having fun?

    Sorry I can only say that full moons and Santa Ana winds can create 100 foot visibility and warm calm nights. Bugs can be hard to come by. Good luck.

    What he said about viz. Try to find dirty water. I have seen bottom in 60 plus feet there at night by moonlight only, and one bug in 7 sets.
