When you get to a cove how do you dissect it...Do you have a mental checklist....In order what do you look for?

Find the area that correlates to the seasonal pattern you expect them to be in. Find the highway they use to go in & come out. Creek channel, road bed, tree line, grass or bank line. Then follow it to the first piece of cover they should stop on. Then do the same in the middle of the creek & back. Get a couple bites and use that templet throughout the lake. You should be able do break down a major creek in about an hour. Patterning on the fly is my favorite class to teach people.

Act like your rigging a rod or eating a sandwich, wait until you see someone catch one. Then go pot lick.

I always try to start on the wind blown point then head to the bankline the creek channel gets closest to.
