Fishing information and reports for for the rest of the Cook County Forest Preserve District waters.
First time at Maple. Got out early on my Kayak. Launched just past the boat rental place. Parked near the dumpster and dragged my yak down the grass and launched. Caught 3 large mouth bass early then nothing the rest of the afternoon. Nice little lake. Not too "weedy". The deepest part of the lake seems to be between the boat house and the drainage pipe before the overlook. The lake got pretty crowded with people fishing from shore and people on rental kayaks, canoes and john boats with electric trolling motors.
Caught all 3 on a 6 inch worm rigged on a drop shot.

Nice going. But I thought private boats weren't allowed on Maple.
Keep calm and fish on...
There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

They're not but I saw others posting that they were fishing from their kayaks and no one bothered them so I thought I would give it a try.
