I was talking to a river fisherman last weekend who said I was missing the boat with how I am setting my lines. I have been running bankpoles behind current breaks in or near deep water with cover for flathead. Most of them are on outside bends. We have been doing well on numbers and caught fish up to 43lbs with quite a few between 20 and 40 over the last 3 years, but I am really looking to break 50 now. He said I should be fishing above the cover on the first shallow flat I find to catch the big fish when they become active enough to feed. Any ideas on this or success stories you don't mind sharing?
