I got to the channel about 6:00PM and hooked up in the first 2 mins. I had a limit by 8:30. Plus a bonus 46 inch Muckie that hit at the end of the trip. He had my lucky purple holigraphic harness in his mouth that I wanted back. Most of my waleyes were taken on that harness with purple beads. Noise from the barge didn't seem to be bothering the fish!
