I fished the wwd from 11:30-3:00. The water was high and very cloudy from all of the morning rain; this caused a lot of spots to be inaccessible. It was overcast out with temps in the high 40's.

I caught five large mouths and one small mouth (I found a spot where I had could cast between two trees). All the fish were tiny in the 6-9" range. All were caught between 11:30 and 1:00.

I wasn't able to spot any huge fish because of how cloudy the water was. I bet our toothy friend was in there some where though.

Thanks for the report, but like Augy said, are you sure that was a smallmouth? There aren't any smallmouths in there unless somebody released some.

I thought for sure that it was a small mouth. However, I have made mistakes identifying fish past so you guys are probably right. I'm going there again tomorrow to try my luck. I'll make sure to take a picture so you guys can me identify the fish (if I catch some thing similar again).

Are you sure that it wasn't a white crappie? I saw a guy that was fishing at the Glen this summer calling crappies bass. :lol:

I saw a news story a few months ago about a guy catching a piranha in the Des Plaines. There is certainly enough food for them around the wwd! :D

For as long as I can remember, this happens every couple of years. What happens is... people release their "pet" piranha's that get too big for their aquariums and they wind up getting caught by weekend anglers.
