Got out on the Fox River in the western suburbs with JNap and Edai2000 for some smallmouth bass fishing.

Temps in the 80's; mix of sun and clouds; south winds 10-15mph; fished from 4:15pm-8pm.

Between the 3 of us, we picked up 15 smallmouth bass with several 14"-18". Used JNap custom tinsel jigs with fathead minnows. Great outing!

Totals:
JNap 10 smallmouth bass (big fish 18+")
Eric 3 smallmouth bass (big fish 14+")
JasonN 2 smallmouth bass (big fish 17")

Had a great time. We'll get out again in mid-late sept and bring the musky gear :shock:

Roleplaya............smallies aren't exclusive to the Fox. The Kankakee river has more big smallmouth than any other river in Il in my opinion and the harbors along the lakefront are loaded with them at times.

Nice smallies guys. I think that they are my favorite fish to catch. I caught 18 of them the end of July when I was up in Door County.
