look for eddies my friend, little current breaks where they can rest and ambush. many times when fishing bridge pilings, when the wind really kicks up and that water starts moving, they will get right behind the pilings to dodge the current.
look for deep holes, big boulders , hard bends, back sides of points.
they will hold real tight to cover when you find them. sometimes the fish wont even show on sonar they are so tight to the cover.
On the Eighth Day, God Created two types of humans, some hunters, some fishers. I know which one I am. and thankful for it. www.nekidtackle.com
