I usually fish shallow....especially around here in colorado in the summer, alot of lakes dont give you any other options. usually its no more than 4 feet deep in the peak of summer---some of the larger double digit fish ive caught have been in about 18-24 inches of water. i used to do the same back east...with the exception of winter when the cats would ball up in deeper water in schools.

the shallow water technique isnt the best way to fish all of the time...especially as the water cools. however it is one of the only ways on a lot of front range lakes to utilize some sort of assemblance of key terrain on a lake...many of the lakes i fish have nothing as far as cover, humps, or anything along those lines., so using a "flats" area that has some deeper water near by is often the only choice you have in figuring out where the fish might be. i

it works for me....well, sometimes. this year has keep ka-put (well, for me...) as far as catfish are concerned...but it aint over yet ;)
