    i like to look for any depth out of the norm for a given area of river if the whole channell is 12' and you find a depth change as little as 3-4 foot i will fish on the up current side of the hole. and alot of times the fish will be there current or not. alot of the fish will move to the open part of the river system looking for a more stable water temp because the bait will be the first to move and the fish will follow.look for deep water i like 20+'.:big_smile: i'm not a expert but that is my 2 cents worth:crazy: good luck and i hope you get a pig

    Thanx man that was some good advice. I fish the savannah river and where i fish the average depth is bout 10ft i found a hole about 25ft in the main river in heavy current i want to try, and in a cove about a 16 foot hole.
