    Yes, almost always in the Delaware river. I try to anchor where the slack water meets the main river current. The only drawback is that the boat tends to swing too much, but I figure that it is well worth the try. Take care brother!

    I try not to miss any especially if there is current. We've caught a lot of fish around them.

    Remember that at the bottom of most of the submerged bases of these pillars is a huge base and often large area of large rocks or boulders.This is done to prevent undermining or "Scouring" by the current.There often is a huge area to act as cover.Also a fine place to hang up everything.peewee

    Peewee is right about the hanging up. When we fish the bridge pilings we fish them like we are vertical jigging a treetop for crappie and this helps reduce the hang ups.

    If you're not somewhere you can get snagged, you must not be in the right place. lol
