Sometimes I wonder why anyone would go Kentucky Lake for crappie when we have some of the best crwappie right here in the Chicago River. That is one awesome crappie, guys!

just to clear everything up... Since I know I've been getting a lot of carp lately 13 in 3 outings.... I am a multi species fisherman Next spring i'll be able to drive and cant wait untill I can wade the Fox !!!!

This question is for anyone who consistantly fishes the chicago river:

My brother is a heavy Catfisherman He loves the speciment. I usually put him on cats near warm water discharges or Deep holes Or even steep drop offs with some type of under water structure... But is there a consistant Catfish hole That produces good Numbers other then howard and Mcormick Becuase He wants them now.. while i on the other hand is looking into some bass and crappie action this weekend.
