River current seams are the boundary between moving and slack water and major fish congregators. Mike McClelland takes us on a tour of some Mississippi River current seams and eddies – smallmouth bass pack these locations, but the angler needs to be able to read the seams and determine how and where bass are positioned in them.

Mike points out key areas of the eddies created by current seams and how to break them down with a versatile finesse jig and craw combo. Although a wide category of lures will work, a jig is the best choice for combing these areas and getting multiple fish to fire.
