He may not see this tonight, but I can answer the question. No livescope involved, just knowing the lake and where to fish.

Doubt it. If they had Livescope they could just target fish instead of drifting. Probably just found an area or areas with fish on the graph, got positioned with the wind, and drifted accordingly like you would for catfish. If they just picked an area or depth willy nilly and said lets drift here, that would be a mighty impressive result.

Nice job btw op

That’s how we fish this time of year on LOP. We use drift socks to control the drift.. no faster than .7 mph and you’ll be able to keep a 3/4oz bell weight on the bottom. Very easy and can catch limits very quickly. Like the OP said, lots of fish hang out in the flats off the river in 18-25’
