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