North Housen Bay

We entered North Housen Bay to find David Mullins and Josh Bertrand heaving plugs in deeper water. "If you're lucky enough to find a place where you can throw a plug without getting it stuck, you're doing alright," Mullins said from his Triton. Further into the bay was Chad Morgenthaler, who was pitching a black-and-blue jig-and-pig combo. He's got four fish for about 8 pounds. As we chatted he lost a 3 1/2 and a 3 pounder. "This has been my juice the last two days, but it's kind of run out, which is a bad thing," he said.
