You heard it better get here quick I wouldn't even bother showing up at daybreak. The whole canal is lit up like a Christmas tree with red white and green lights.

I got some email from somewhere that said if you're thinking of going to the canal, get here now this weekend. 

Which to me meant, stay home.

I'm only canal now, and there's literally nowhere to fish where I am. Guys every 50' or closer as far as the eye can see, both sides. I've never seen anything like this.

Thanks but I just went home. Nothing is worth fishing like this. I'd rather stick sharp objects in my eyes.

I was there last night as well with my brother, thinking the morning would be packed but the night might be ok. Nope. It wasnt exactly shoulder to shoulder, but not comfortable either. We walked a bit and got some decent distance between the people next to us and fished for about two hours, then a guy shows up and posts about 20 yards to our right, in the direction the current was flowing. I thought that was fine, because I could control my drift and deal with it, and if anything, I would hinder him. I guess he thought the same thing because he packed up, and posted to our left, reversing the situation. We just went home for the night. What I should have done is moved literally 5 ft to his left and started fishing, and if he said anything, say to him, "If you dont like fishing close to others, why are you fishing so close to me?"

Bubbah you want to fish?

Sand or ditch,  no matter to me..

 Shame how the  ditch is,  but then again.  Sands i use to be  hunted down on.  Thats what friends  buggies are for 

  I catch and letem go could care less how big they are,  snap a pic once in a while .  Been hit up for some bass so may keep a 20 lb or less fish. 15 lb would be nice for my neighbor .

Last Sept, when all the big fish were stuffed in the canal, and there were albies on the south side, I was undecided what I wanted to do and put both a canal rod and albie rod....thinking I'd decide on the fly when I get close. I drove by the herring run at around 4 am, and the lot was not only full, but several police cars were present as well....so I just kept on truckin' and headed to my albie spots instead....it's all I needed to see
