    Light weights... I had pretty good luck below wheeler last fall just behind the power line that is nearest to the turbines. There is a good hole about fifty foot from the base, if you put the boat in the right spot it will draw the bait up stream. I use about a 1 ounce weight and never more than 2 ounces. Caught several in the 20# range, nothing monster though.
