After school Decided to get the bike and head down to the Chicago river ( Clear Blue) Instead of some carp fishing I was hoping to get into some crappie but after getting there the greenies, gills and largies changed my mind and before I knew it, well it was time to head home. I was jigging on my 6'0 Berkley Lightning series rod with 6lb test and a 1/62oz jig with a variety of small plastics. As I was leaving seen another guy come, Usually I have the whole river to myself this time of year.
