Fishing steep drops on shallow flats

Steep drop-offs like this can be prime fish holding areas. Quick access to shallow flats in deep water, presents multiple feeding opportunities in a small area. Start the search with Structure Scan pass and waypoint key cover off to the side.

Now comes the boat control piece. Because i’m targeting fish on a highly defined structure, I want to methodically cast key sections without spooking fish. Using your waypoint as stop signs, lock the boat into position with your shallow water anchor- thoroughly casting each section.

Talon up and moving down the line to the next way point and do the same. This does two things: 1. It keeps you off the troll which can be important when fish are heavily pressured. 2. It prevents you from blowing over productive water.
