Fresh off my controversial sprint around Lake Glenview yesterday, I hit the Skokie Lagoons this evening.

Fished from 5:45pm-7pm; temps about 80; sunny; almost no wind where I was at the whole time.

Worked Lagoon#6 on the side of the #5/#6 dam.

Started with Senko's and had a couple of taps before having a fish half-way home. Lost it though! :x Tried some crank baits then threw a 3/4 oz spinnerbait and had a hit immediately. Wound up being a 10" bass. What balls to go after that bait!

There was a family of bucketheads catching several bluegill and crappie from both sides of the dam with slip bobber rigs and wax worms. None were really big. I probably should have said something to them, but was in no mood to do so. Just wanted to enjoy an evening of fishing and share the report - good or bad.

Well that would be the take for the evening. The fish must have been hungry because even Jay caught a fish!

Thanks for the report Jay. It's amazing how big the lagoon system is. There has got to be some serious spots all over that place.

At least you didnt get the skunk. Those lagoons are a sweet area. Next time I go out there I may launch at the actual launch and see check out the south lagoons. It seems like most reports come from 5-6.

Thanks for the report Jay. I have found out lately that you need to work those Senkos and Yum Dingers really slow. Pretty much dead-sticking them.

I probably should have mentioned that... the hits I had on the Senko were all after it was stopped for several seconds and resting on the bottom.
