I was up there about a month ago, water was really low, imagine it hasnt gotten much better. We usually do pretty good in the spring up there, not sure about now.

Actually right now is one of the better times of the year to be hitting the channel bite up this way and around ER. They are finished with spawning and putting on the :feed bag" for cooler temps with fall coming.

I never have had much luck during spring time/higher water times. If the current is up and flowing, they spread out too much. When the water is low and slow, they congregate in certain areas.

I would look for any holes deeper than 10-12', cut up some sucker on a 6/0 gama octi circle, on a med. action rod with 20-30ln mono, about 2-3 onces of bank or no-roll sinker and about 8-10" of leader from weight to the hook. Cast out at first right in the hole (boat or shore), put rod on Y stick or in holder and NO clicker. wink WSatch the tip and hope for a 15lb plus fish.

Between 2,3 or 4 guys, you hit it right, it is just like a good bite on the Chain during ice time. Just slightly bigger and a good chance at a 20lber and over 50 fish a night.

Good luck.

    • He hasn't insulted my peeps and me.   Ok, women, yes they have a beef.   Hispanics, nope. Illegal hispanics...oh boo hook you snuck in here or expired work visa and you push out a few puppies and now you crying about split families? If you gave 2 shiats about your family you would of filled out some paper work.   Muslims, self explanatory.    Everyone else, delicate sensibilities, entitlement and just flat out pussEcats.    
    • This election isn't about the GOP turning their backs on Trump.  The party was forced to go anti-Trump.  The man went out of his way to insult every group possible.  If you want people to vote for you, you don't insult them.      16 days, 14 hours and 34 minutes until this stupid election is over.
    • thx don.  so far only seeing bluejays and the male red bellied on the bungee corn.  
    • I had a tire blow on my trailer at highway speed. It blew the fender off and the wiring. I can't find the bayonet plug that actually fits the clearance lights. Does anyone have a clue as to where I could buy some? It is not the blue or red style you see everywhere.
    • Sadly it comes down to the winner being the one who's party hates them the least
    • looks like the links from 2010 and back are gone?   really love making this stuff. I like to chop up dried cranberries and add.  mmmmmmm

    • A lot of you don't know it because you live in the boonies, but most New Yorkers despise Trump and consider him rude and obnoxious.  This is from the same people that the rest of the country thinks are rude and obnoxious.  That's pretty bad.   The only people supporting him in New York are the extremely wealthy, who look to him to protect their wealth, and the rednecks who are easily persuaded, the same sort of poor rednecks that bravely fought for a confederacy to support  the same slavery that was keeping them poor.   Trump's "Huuuuge" soundbite is actually stolen from a stupid New York automobile sales commercial.
