A buddy and I made a trip out this last Sunday for an afternoon on the river. We lost count after about 20, and ended up keeping 5 around the 1 1/2 lbs mark. Rubber baits seemed to be the trick. I tried a couple of different worms, but the ticket seemed to be a rubber smelt/fry with a dark top and silver belly. I could see some pretty decent sized fish down in the bottom, but I could never get one of them to strike.
