Had a dismal week of fishing (absolutely horrible) so I thought I'd go fishing today to close it out and to call it a crappy week before I head up north for 4-5 days to rejuvinate myself and to finally play with the new boat.

Might as well give an actual report for the first time in a while.... I still go fishing at least an hour each day but no time to report with small part time job, web projects, and being a summer intern with school.

In 90-minutes of angling and some quick hopping at my "high percentage" spots I finally managed Walleye #1 of season and it turned out to be a 26-27" fish, really close to beating my PB fish from here set in each of the three previous years at 25-26".

Sorry, I had to be kinda "ghey" with this because I couldn't show the visible landmark that was in the background.





Bang some cranks off the rocks and it's showtime..... I think, at least.

Thank God I had a day off today otherwise this wouldn't have happened and I would have been further sulking in fishing depression.

With the weather and water temps appearing to finally stabilize this spring the fishing can only get better for next week and the following. What's also helping is the fact that the baitfish are finally coming out to play - first time all friggin' spring!

The end of this week was decent, however. In what limited time I've had for fishing each day, I've had the pleasure of catching some large LM and SM Bass for this place, and even a Pike thrown into the mix. Obviously signs of some good things to come.

After the quick photos and release of the fish pictured above, baitfish were getting snagged on my crank's trebles so it's no wonder why this large lady and possibly others were in the area today.

Less than 5-minutes from the front door and what more could I ask for!?!

Good fishing.

LOL. Maybe it's because I don't have a honeyhole, but I've always thought it was kinda weird to block out backgrounds.

btw, Andrew, I've recently moved and I'm near Salt Creek, off of Irving Park. I think I remember you saying your aunt lives near Wood Dale, do you know of any access points that allow parking? Thanks.

Thanks Sean.

Got this one on a Countdown but I've got a friend who's been bangin' them on Shad Raps.

Got an acquaintance who has done some electroshocking up that way with the DNR.

The water up there is lifeless, has very low PH levels, and from his words and my experience, you won't find too much other than sunfish and Carp.... maybe some straggler Bass.

There's a public park next to the bridge on Irving Park. Don't know what parking situation is like over there since I dump in at the aunt's house which is just across the 'flow but that area would be a good place to start.
