Whatcha Lookin At?

So now that we’ve established the idea of “eye discipline“, it’s time to start applying it to some real life scenarios.  The dune that is featured in this video really is a random dune I picked out on Google Earth.  I’m not saying that it won’t be productive, heck some of you might already recognize it and know it is productive for you.  I’m just saying I really did pick it just because it had a lot of the features I wanted to talk about all in one area.

Anyway, enough explaining and on to the show…

  1. You are opening my eyes to a better understanding of the dunes area of Potholes lake. Still more to learn. Pointing out what characteristics and features to look for to verify if there is a beaver hut in the area was fantastic, especially the trail portion. I sign on everyday to see if there is another article on GOA. Keep it up.

  2. Not familiar with Potholes or some of the differing structure or cover, I’m enjoying watching these lessons. Looking at Beaver huts and the trails leading up to them, is this something that should be fished especially when the water is high? I’m specifically asking about the trails leading up to the huts.

  3. As I have learned over my own study on this lake, a lot of the huts may disappear from one year to the next, and also that normally, if they are moved they are usually not very far away. Also, often times, there are multiple huts in the same area….and as I refer to them…..they may have April, May and June homes….since they are most likely at different water levels.

  4. Fantastic. I really liked how you pointed out how to look for elements that point you to the highest percentage areas. Especially at Potholes where everything is “eye-candy,” and eliminating this makes you more efficient on the water.
