I usually check any stickups or stumps that I can see. I'm still figuring out the side imaging, so I'll also jig anything I find on that. If I don't get bit in two to three minutes, I move on. If I do get bit, I'll stay for as long as twenty minutes on one spot.
I'm borrowing another member's (MulGogiHunter) image below. The creek is at the far right. I usually park in the area in red at Loyd Park, and hit the open water before the winds pick up. Once it gets windy I go back in the creek.
