    Sounds like ya had a fun morning. Be extra careful when the river is running high with logs floating by. Maybe the fish will cooperate more next time.

    Try the whole mooneye and the fish might get bigger for you. I personally haven't seen a mooneye yet that I thought was too big to fish whole.:smile2:

    I've used some BIG baits myself that I even felt a little 'foolish' putting on the hook. Then WHAM! You know the rest of the story.:eek:oooh:
