Wife and I hit Black River Saturday afternoon around 2:30. We took a dozen live 6" goldfish, and a dozen 3-5" shiners to see how well they would work. We were on the river until approximately 8:30 pm. Only caught two fish, one small flat and one 4-5lb channel. We did have two or three good runs but no hook-up. We suspected the runs were from gar but you never know. Anyway, we had a very enjoyable afternoon and the river was beautiful.
