Hey everyone. I was recently directed to this site and am impressed. I took my first trip to the river a few weeks ago. I managed a few channels but missed out on the bigger flatheads. I'm heading back down there this Saturday night. I'm thinking about going further south and trying out the Palo Verde area. I was told to fish the drainage ditches. The ones I saw couldn't have been more than a couple of feet deep. Am I overthinking this or should I look for deeper ones? Also, I managed to catch a couple of Gills but had them die out on my pretty quick while in my bucket. The goldfish I had lived but were pretty sluggish. Any tips on keeping the bait alive? Thanks everyone and I'm looking forward to participating on the board.
