Fishing Water with Current
We all know that if you want to catch big fish you have to find where the current is. So my question is what direction do you want to fish it and how deep in the water column. I do a lot of fishing at the breechways where you let the current bring the lure out and you retrieve the lure against the current. I catch lots of fish this way. However you go to a rivers and fish it and almost never catch fish going against the current.
What about points when the current is flowing say west to east. Do you cast and retrieve straight across or up the currrent and retrieve with the current? What is genereally the most productive? Then what types of lures would you say and what part of the water column would you focus on. Lets try and narrow this down and say night fishing these spots.
I hope I didn't open to many variables here. Just would like to know what is the first thing you would try in these situations.
