    I fish rock, timber, or anything else that usually is submerged when I fish the Ohio River but prefer different structure for lakes and smaller rivers where its not really deep such as root sytems from trees off the bank, or standing timber. Every place is different but mainly for me what kind of structure I fish is water depth and location.

    i fish it all depending on conditions, but i voted timber top to bottom. i probably would answer differently if i were a blue cat guy though.

    i have caught more fish off of humps and rock piles in the ohio river.
    lakes are a different story as i will usually fish stumpy creek channels or sunken timber.

    catch most of my fish off of stuff ya can't see which means other people aren't hammering it as hard as the visible stuff.

    This is what I have picked for some of the same reason, they are fished much less. The main reason I fish sunken timber is because it is the most common in the areas I fish which are flood control lakes. I do love log jams when fishing the rivers for numbers I don't think you can beat them.

    drop-off's, sunken boats or barges, campers from floods, bridge pilings, timber, eddy's. Anything to get the fish out of the main current seems to work good for me.

    I like the submerged stuff. Find it when the water is low and fish it like crazy when the water comes up. This type of hole seems to be more permanent and therefore the fish are able to "colonize" it. With less permanent holes, the fishing can be hit and miss

    Well Where did the all of the above button go on the survey ??? I have fished all the examples with some success. To me it's one of those keep an open mind things. At different time of the year and different bodies of water, all are good places.

    I did that deliberately. I wanted everyone to pick one.. Not take the easy route and say all. I figured by making the poll such.... as you had to pick one over the others, there would be more posts made explaining why those chose what they did, and why they like it best.:wink: rollo
