Work schedule got messed up today so I jumped out on the chain for a few hours this morning armed with a dozen leeches and a dozen crawlers. Worked a jig tipped with live bait around a bridge area produced 3 nice cats, a mess of white bass, 3 small eyes, 2 largemouth, and a couple of gills(no pics). Not bad for 3.5 hour. Ran out of bait and headed for the ramp before all the pleasure boats got there.

Very nice for short time work. Seems you gots the chain dialed in. With no rain, I take it still low. How about temp? Up there yet?

Hey,

I recognize that bridge hehe. I consider myself an expert when it comes to fishing there. I think I've been fishing for about 5yrs, 4 from above and 1 in a boat. Walleyes have been unusually shallow under there. I have caught many this past month only about a ft down using a mimic minnow, now my favorite lure of mine right in front of a white mini mite. My personal best was a 21in walleye this spring. Got a 24in northern last summer. Try crawler harnesses when the current is moving. This bridge can be a real treat along with the old bridge further down the channel. But I usually only have luck there when the current is moving a little faster.
