    Fished the upper today for 6 hours with Dan , very slow bite , we kept 6 and threw back 3 shorts.
    Marked fish pretty consistent on the graph but could not get them to turn on , it was not for lack
    of trying , we threw every color combo at them and also tried minnows. :):):) IMG_20201031_150704.jpg IMG_20201031_150657.jpg

    Nice catch. How deep is the canal coming out of the Alter launch?

    Yes like Marty asked. How much clearance to the bridge? If I go Tuesday I'm going the other way around the park!

    Nice catches! Middle/Tommy's canal is at about 3’, I trim up in there just in case. West canal is always deep.

    Hey Walt I'll bet it felt good to jig again. Now I'm torn between Erie and the river Tuesday.
    I got my river gear together. But I have some bandits that need a workout also!

    Don’t use the East canal, as the clearance is too low. The West canal is fine.
