Gerald Swindle goes through how he covers water efficiently when he goes to different bodies of water especially when it comes to finding areas that have a lot going on in a small section which is often found with channel swing banks. Channel swings offer depth options, often changes in bottom composition, transition areas for fish moving into and out of shallower areas say around the spawn or going out to wintering holes or summer haunts after the spawn.
Utilizing newer technology like Humminbird Mega Imaging and LakeMaster cartography, Swindle has been able to break down bodies of water a lot faster. He can find patterns within similar looking areas by studying the swings to find ones that maybe have more trees or more rock or maybe one has baitfish congregated that can help you pinpoint exactly where on the swing the fish will be feeding. But he spends a lot of time now staring at his graphs and reading the banks for clearer picture on the bodies of water he’s going to fish even if he’s prefishing for a place he might not come back and fish in a tournament for a few months. He can learn a lot by utilizing the technology he has at his disposal now.
