We caught a decent amount of fish but we found out to late in the season that you can catch big fish on the river. as me and my dad search for the big boy we try every day after having one great day catching two nice bass and about a 27-30 inch pike my dad is pumped so the next day i go to school then i see my dad in the parking lot after school and i hopped in the car and he goes i got'em i got the big one that day my dad caught a 20 inch pike to start things off then as he jerked his crankbait the thing nailed it he found him self landing a 37 inch northern pike although he was by himself he managed to get a decent pic here are some

okay some great spots on the des plains are in the lemont area there is also many runoffs ponds that hold pike up to 40 inches these spots should be good in spring because pike like to spawn shallow swampy areas KEY this spring looks for swamy shallow areas this spring!
