This Evening Like most Evenings Neil and I set out For Some Large Mouth Bass action. We Hit the Discharge Around 7:15p.m. only to Nail three Together Neil Caught two And I caught one on my first cast. So Since only three we decided to fish My Favorite Local spot about 5 Minutes away From my house We set out to my "GEM" Spot as Usually on Overcast/Rainy days The large Mouth Get Stacked up here. There's no Discharge just a Shallow Flat 2-3 feet with a lot of Submerged Brush and Trees with a vast amount of bait Fish including Gizzard shad, Golden Shiners, And Tons of Minnows. Usually this spot Produces very nice Crappie but Mostly in the fall and spring. After a Self Struggle Through all the brush and Thorns just getting to the spot. I started tossing out a Personal Bait of Choice for the Chicago River Catching a Bass on every two to three cast. It was Great Catching bass at night Neil unfortunately had no success at this spot but will next time !!
Tomorrow we are trying are luck else were.... Look for the Report !
The bass at The Glen are freaking anorexic, skinny, pale, and really unhealthy. I pulled an 18" bass this summer out of there and I'd be surprised if it passed 2 lbs. (Not that I'm hating on The Glen, I fish there all the time -- just hope the fishery gets better over there)
pokerguy and axeiom, i had to delete your posts. having your own opinions are what this site is all about but there will be no flame wars here. we want this site to be a clean and supportive site for anglers who share the love of our sport. you guys are still very welcome at WCF and look forward to your participation.
Thanks for taking care of that while I was in transit to LA, Augy.
Folks... let me make something EXTREMELY clear - i'm not letting ANYONE start any kind of shit with other users of this site. I don't care if Babe Winkelman himself joins WCF and starts something - i'll ban him.
NO smart-ass remarks to anyone.
No profanity towards anyone.
No racist remarks to anyone.
And if one damned flame war starts up, i'm suspending those users for a week and they can then enjoy the wonderful folks at the other Chicagoland fishing sites.
In the past year (since WCF got message boards), i've made some terrific new friends, shared some awesome fishing experiences, and have had a blast having you all aboard for the fun. But i'm not going to let some punk-ass shit ruin these boards! Ok?
Peace and love - Jason W. Norris, Owner of Windycityfishing.com
