    I started scouting the Rappahanock for the first time last weekend out of Hicks. It got me curious as to what some of y'all catching big fish in the Rappahanock and other similiar sized rivers look for when deciding where to fish. I've always primarily fished areas where back channels meet the main channel during the tide and in generally deep water. So what do you guys look for? Structure, Water Depth, Etc? Post Spawn?
