I would of never imagined landing my first Illinois walleye from the local pond in my subdivision that doesn't even have a name. For the last 3 years I fished the Fox from Algonquin to Montgomery with no luck catching an "EYE"! So, last night night right before sunset I walked across my neighbors' yard to try to catch a bass. Well, first cast produced a dink largemouth. However, couple of casts later, I landed my first walleye. Two casts later - a black crappie. Then immediately afterwards, I landed an even larger walleye. As the sunset, the bite disappeared. Unfortunately, I can't give you the location because my HOA dues will go up once this information is made public. I fished this pond a few times during the last two springs and never dreamed of hooking a walleye. I basically only fish there to try to learn how to cast my fly rod.

Kind of amazed fishing is allowed there, our subdivision ponds say, in most threatening terms, "do not even try to approach".
Ours restriction is for residents only that have a special fishing license for our subdivision. It is strictly catch and release. There are even 4 "fish wardens" that have those golf carts that patrol the ponds.
