PG Report: 7/29/06 ... Chicago's Finest

Made Plans Late Last Night to hit the River at 6.a.m. With Shane. So I met him up and we drove to a nice spot. Shallow And Gravel. We Were throwing tubes with a few fish here and there, then Shane threw out a Shallow Diving Orange Crawdad Lure. And followed through with fish after fish. I switched to a Medium Diving Yellow Crank bait with a black dot and Caught a Few Fish. This day alone has made up for my last two outings!
