Some Fox River outings shown below and in one of the replies.
Last Sunday, a friend and I waded in the North Aurora area. IIRC, he caught 1 or 2 small bass, then hooked this walleye on an inline spinner. A good kind of uninvited guest to crash the fishing party.
I think this is his first-ever walleye and only the 2nd walleye we've caught in the years we've been fishing the Fox (I caught one a few years ago in Oswego).
Later, I got on the board with a small bass on a suspending jerk bait. I was hesitant to grab it because he was barely hooked and didn't want treble hooks in my hand. Luckily, my friend got a photo before the fish thrashed and flopped off shortly after this photo was taken.
Tuesday I went on my own and got skunked. Then this morning, I got in the water at 5 AM and started with a whopper plopper. Nothing! I just can't catch a fish on a plopper. I switched to a buzz bait and 3rd cast, I got this guy:
A few casts later, I got this one:
About 15 minutes later, I missed another one on the buzz bait. Then that bite seemed to die, so I switched to a chatter bait to get a little deeper with the rising sun. Ended up with this one:
I was done by about 8 AM. Fun times! We'll try again this Sunday (and I may try again on my own Saturday).
