I fish a fairly large river. I set up in all the usual places and generally do pretty good. But I've had way too much time to think lately.:wink: If I start off the night at the head of a deep bend with lots of submerged timber, where are the fish actually GOING to? I mean, usually there'll be a little flurry of acticity right after it gets dark but then there's a long period of inactivity. Is it possible that I'm in a good spot for getting the fish as they come out of their daytime hiding spots but missing them as they go back downstream? They have to have an actual destination or a route they follow right? I'm thinking that they cruise thru the deep hole and feed thru there but when they get to the front of the hole they go across the river onto the shallow, featureless flats. Does that sound right? I can't catch a single one if I go say, 60 yards upstream of this spot, so they have to be going somewhere else. There's 2 big deep bends that I fish and once it's fully dark, the shallow flats across from these holes are full of life. I just haven't had the confidence to fish there yet. Am I missing out?? How does your location change as the night progresses to keep catching fish?
