The river I fish for flats has an overabundance of cover and is not very deep. There are some deep holes and every bend in the river has a big sandbar on the inside bend without much cover, it is also much more shallow there. The outside bend is deeper with lots of cover. When I set my lines out we usually target the cover right up close to the bank in shallower water..(not on the sandy inside bend but right up on the bank) and we catch flats that way but not a big one yet.....have tried all the cover in the middle with no luck. I was just wondering what everyones opinion on where to find them might be. There is so much cover sometimes you have to get out and walk your boat around trees and such.
