      Cover a couple mile stretch hitting different rocks/banks to determine where fish are. steep bank vs gentle slope, sandy vs big rocks vs small rocks. They seem to ...more move around a lot.
    2. Not looking for secrets. New to a lake much bigger than I'm used to. Just hoped for some starting points. Wishing you continued success and hoping a short winter ...more will mean the docks go back in soon.
