I'm visiting Plainfield for awhile. Friday I thought I was the next jmdog when I hooked my first ever DuPage River smallie. Caught from shore using a Roadrunner jig head and a white 3-inch curly tailed grub.
But I quickly returned to reality because that was the only one I caught that morning. Saw a bunch of others though, plus a turtle and 2 snakes.
Then today, my friend from Chicago joined me and he caught a nice one, also from shore.
We saw even more bass than I did on Friday. But none except the one pictured wanted anything to do with our jigs, topwaters, or anything else. In fact, they seemed more scared of them than anything. Plus we saw another turtle and 2 more snakes.
I plan to keep trying this week. We just saw so many bass that it's difficult to pass it up.
