    I am just checking around to see if anyone knows for sure if the channels are spawing. I haven't had much luck the last week or so the last one I caught was near a rock pilling and he was dark blue and boy was he pissed, I am pretty sure they probably are just wanted to see if anybody else noticed the same thing.

    In pool 17 the channels are hitting pretty good, especially on Sonnys dip. Some of the females are empty and some are full. The males are real dark around the mouth and underneath. Right now all I'm using is dip and of all the kinds I have, Sonnys is the only one producing. Good luck.
