With the winter season approaching, water levels slightly down and gin clear water. Now is the time ( if the fish are not biting ) to take a boat ride along the shoreline and scout next years hot spots. Isolated rock piles , subtle changes in bottom composition, or maybe a boulder that you did not know was there. Don't wait until the water is cloudy from springtime rains and your boat is sitting on top of the fish and structure that you can't see. These could be key areas in your springtime game plan. Make your notations on your favorite map and you will be a step ahead for next year.Good Luck.
