When backed up against the cattails, turn 90ļ either way & fish parallel to them once in a while. Think about it. If you were prey, would you hide in open water, or in the cattails? Of course it depends on the bottom structure & the time of day. The big fish may lie in deeper, cooler water, just off a ledge, water offering protection. But when the light starts to fade, it's hunting time for big fish.
I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.
