I was "this" close to going to the Skokie Lagoons this evening, but didn't.

From past experience, from now through Mother's Day is a GREAT time to catch crappie at the Skokie Lagoons. The Key... Rapala Husky Jerks. BIG TIME!
i'm still a little puzzled on which lagoon is #6 and where to fish in the lagoon when i get there. i know there is some monster bass in the lagoons and i also heard about some good pike. Mainly the bass, walleye, and crappie though. if interested in going this weekend let me know.
The crappies are in the wood in Lagoon #6. Fished there on Friday and the minnow dippers were killing them in the fallen trees. I caught my share using a white 2" flat tail grub. Lots of small bass and bluegills also. It is amazing the size of the goldfish and carp that live in the lagoons.
