ever I read articles relating to fishing they often refer to two
terms, structure and cover. Interpretations as follows,
Structure Abrupt changes in underwater topography in lakes rivers
and streams. Some examples are: submerged river, creek and gully
beds, rock bars, sand bars, ledges, drop offs, humps and holes,
accumulations of stone, rock boulders and timber. Man made structure
includes submerged roadways, dams, earth, tanks, stone walls,
dam walls, causeway, bridges, buildings and large pipes, water
intake towers, jetties and boat ramps.
Cover Natural objects in or around a lake stream or river examples
include submerged trees and brush. Snags, brush piles, stumps,
logs, a few rocks, stones, or a boulder. Vegetation overhanging
the water, emergent and aquatic floating weed in the water. As
anglers we can use these terms to communicate to each other the
locations of fish or good fish holding water.
