    I have done pretty good this summer with the flatheads, but now that fall is here, I know the will be feeding up for winter in these "wintering holes". What exactly is your opinion of a good wintering hole in a lake? The has some good bends in the channel, that is where I would start I guess, what do yall think?

    you say lake but also channel bends ,so im guessing its actually a reservior. if you can post a contour map photo you will get better advice bro. other than that i can only say deep water cover is the place to look.

    yes it is a resevoir, which was built in the early 60s, it had some pretty good rivers before they backed it up, two main ones. I only fish one of them.

    that one weighed 35, but it was at santee, have caught a 37, 38, and my fishing partner a 43 this summer, and the 37 and 43 out of the same hole.
