You can see that where the bank turns away there is slack water and a small eddy created by the current.


Structure Library - Eddy
Fish will sit in the slack water to escape the current and to wait for a meal to float by. Crawling a bait into the water from the bank is a great way to catch a fish or two. Depending on the species, you may be able to catch several fish out of a small area like this before spooking them.

Try to position yourself far above or below and throw your lures far beyond the eddy. As the lure moves close to the slack water, be ready for a strike. If you are positioned above the fish, you may not feel anything more than your line going slack.
