I'm w IFitSWIMS. Depends on the bite but I rarely will stay in one spot for more than 2 hours unless I am confined to the bank. If I'm bank fishin I will move three times max and it turns into more of a beer drinking contest...

Maybe once because I am stuck bank fishing for now and I have too much stuff to move around.

1-3 spots depending on the night and conditions. Sometimes we set up camp on a good sandbar, then fish a spot or two from the boat before midnight. Once we get ready to settle in for the night we come back to the sandbar for the rest of the night and snooze with our clickers on. Some of my best fish have come late while snoozing in a lawn chair between 2 rods with clickers set. I really think keeping quiet is key to having big flatheads feeding nearby so I always re-bait with the biggest baits left and get the rods in prime spots before settling in. When we are sleeping and outside of the aluminum boat we are being quiet.

one spot all night for me because ill go and scout out the river and i choose the best area that a flathead will be and am confident that ill get one if i just stay put

Usually I'm bank fishing so I rarely ever move too much of a pain. Confidence in your spot plays a big part. And when I do move I'm always wondering should I have stayed there Haha. So I stay put.

When I anchor on a spot I am pretty confident that the one fish I'm after could be there, or will be there. Therefore break out the chairs, snacks and drinks cause we are usually where we are staying for the night.
