Nice fish and fishing partner!
That barge fishing sure is fun. Used to fish the Lynxville(sp?) near Prarie Du Chien one back in the 80's with some guys from school. Slept overnight in the bunks. Great fall colors on the bluffs. Funniest thing, my friends used to trailer a boat all the way up there to just fish from the barge the whole weekend. Never once did we go out and try some other spots on their boat. Could have avoided the hassel and just used the shuttle.
Remember seeing alot of locals wearing these "Falling rock walleye club" jackets with patches for different # walleyes they had caught in the past.
Nice area all along up that way
