So ive been fishing channels for a few years now and im ready to move onto the big guys. Ive got the right gear just not the knowledge on bringing them in. I live in iowa at the widest part of the mississippi. its about a mile across, so if your not in the channel most of the river is pretty shallow. I'm really hoping to move onto some good flatheads but need some advice from you more "seasoned veterans" lol.
