There are seemingly endless amounts of rivers, creeks and their tributaries throughout northeast Illinois.

5/16 evening - Slow changing of the guards

Posting from phone.

Got 3 last night 2 smallies and one eye all on tubes in the same pool I've been catching skis at in my previous posts. All bites were very soft from working the tubes very slow. One ski swimming pool was sighted. Tried Jake and 1/16oz 3" Pearl grub with no luck.

Water is very high but clarity never changes regardless of water levels has been my experience. Knats were out for the first time this time this season. Buds on the tag adlers are starting to open up.

Those some darkens, good work
