    I am learning to fish from a boat and hoping that it increases my catch ratio...Ive always fished from the banks though.

    Guess I'm the odd-ball, i usually drift.:tounge_out: I always fish from a boat and usually in lakes without much current. I like to river fish, theres just not any very close by that produces the kind of fish the area lakes do.

    We always either anchored or tied to log jams in the past, but in the last 2 years have done alot more drifting. It has paid off for us.

    I bank fish all the time. I have several different locations I fish. All of them are capable of producing very large cats. Some of the spots are better for Flatheads. Some of the spots are better for blues and just about all of them produce channels.:cool2:
