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!

Thats some great fishing guys !!!
Man, those bass looked practically the same size as the ones we caught today at deep lake.... and you didn't even have to drive 30min and row a boat around!
