i'm fishing a very large stretch of river and its a very good sized river with a group of islands, rocky shoals and even a couple small tributary rivers coming in. there is also a good amount of 25 ft. water in the channel and a lot of good slues off the river with small inlets that hold crappie and bream all year. there are just no bends in the river on my several mile stretch. There is just a world of possibilites. I have good luck cathing blues in the mouth of the smaller rivers feeding into the big rivers, but i was wondering where to start for flatheads. o, and there is really no huge logpiles because there are no bends, just some caught on the islands.
