Went out last night and anchored in the canal from 8pm - 12:30 am . The action was fast and we never got a break for more than 10 minutes at any time. Probably my best 4 hours of fishing ever in the canal I would say. We ended up catching 18 blues about 240 lbs all together (21, 20, 19, 19, 17, 17, 15, 14, 12, 11 and 8 more 5-10lb each). All were caught on gizzard shad, some cut and some whole bait. We probably lost another 10 fish for various reasons. 25lb leaders just arent quite big enough when fighting fish in the stiff current coming down the canal. Everything feels about twice as heavy you while anchored in the current. Water was moving boat almost 3mph just drifting.
