    I have been fishing Bartlett from the shore for some time. But we always camp and never move. I have never fished from a boat at Bartlett, except from a boat beached on shore.

    Using my shiny new boat, how should I fish Bartlett to catch some big flatties? Should I drift? Should I troll? Should I hit one spot for 15 minutes and if nothing bites move to another spot? Or should I anchor in one good spot and stay all night?

    TIA

    Use two anchors to position yourself between rock piles or anchor points in the main lake area. You can fish off both sides of the boat. And several different depths and bottom structures...

    Thanks~
