buy a subscription to Hiltons, Ripcharts or get a Roffs report that will show currents, water quality, temp breaks and then you can isolate fishy water.

Use your sounder to find and mark fish, if there is a lot of activity then stay and fish, if no activity in 30 minutes I usually go to the next one.

how do yft usually show up on the MFD? Single marks or schooled up? I know to look mainly on the up current side and to get on out away from the rig as well...any other pointers?

Set your sounder to the top 300' of the water colum to start. Then circle the rig all the way around from 50 yards out to a couple hundred yards and look for bigger red marks.
