I don't have a boat, probably won't ever buy a boat, and don't know of too many places to rent a boat. Therefore most of my fishing ends up being from the shore of a lake or river. Since this place is a great source of fishing knowledge I thought I would tap into it and see what you all think are the best places to shore fish or places where you all have done well. I probably won't go too far from home so any places in the northern half of Cook County, anywhere in Lake County, and places in eastern McHenry County would be ideal. Thanks!
