First of all i have to say what a wonderful board this is. I have been lurking for about a year soaking up information and have to say this is the nicest and most helpfull group of people i have seen. You guys and gals are awesome and keep up the good work!! Now, onto my question. I have just gotten into trying to catch the big flatties and love every moment of being on the water. Lately i have been fishing a stretch of river that is full of big fish but has a really rough and nastey bottom. Seems like i stay snagged up. I like to fish a gill on a circle hook with about 16" leader to swivel and peged sinker. This setup is my favorite to fish for both flats and channels. What other rigs would be good to keep from getting hung up as much? I use a medium/heavy 7ft rod and big open face with 25/30# line. Also anytips on fishing the mouth of a creek on the outside bend of a river? I have been mostly a pond and lake fisherman, but the river is beautiful and peaceful, got any good tips? Thanks again!
