Hey guys and gals!

Went to school at SIU for a couple years....made it down last weekend March 6th-8th...and had a blast!

Water temps and winds...kept me off of Devils K., Crab O. and Grassy...also tried Evergreen park (carbondale Res.)with nothing to show for it....but did get the fish dialed in on the Campus Lake...it brought me back!

Too many fish to count, not many of size...or the size I wanted at least!

Most fish fell to Rattle-traps( wind blown points), hollow belly swimbaits(windblown coves), and jigs.(wood)

My first swimbait bass of the season!


Kitty that hit swimbait... 4 feet of water, out of some wood, hit like a train! For about 8 secs. I thought i hooked "the ONE"....still a nice fight!!!


My best fish of the 2 days...PBandJ Jig. off of some wood.:D


(haha FishinMatt, this is my Game On face...HHF style!) :D

good fishin'

Awesome fish JP, I've never really used swimbaits but have been thinking of giving them a try this year!

Love the hog in the third pic, it seems like you catch one everytime your out.

I still think that is one of the coolest sweatshirts I have ever seen! :D
