Current positioning will always be most obvious in places like the Hudson River, especially in the tidal zone, which fluctuates several feet a few times a day. And let me tell you, Shafer still catches them best during moving tides, even when the late fall water temps are in the low 40's. The same goes for places like the TVA Chain that has power generated dams, which ignite populations of bass around current spots, especially when the water is flowing. There, it's not uncommon for my other friend to catch great stringers even during the spawn around high flow areas. It's less obvious, but equally apparent upon closer examination, in places like the Harris Chain of Lakes in Florida, which is basically a maze of canals and lakes that are all connected by subtle flow. In these labyrinth-like systems, my friend finds that even a subtle wind shift can create or alter current, and subsequently increase bass activity in one lake or canal more than another. That fact alone always heightens his awareness of the wind for the day, and even the days preceding his outing.
