Hello folks. I only get to spend some time in the winter to go fishing this year. I’ll be visiting Northern Illinois where my wife comes from. So, what type of fish can I hook during the winter here? If i couldn't get much, i might change the plan.

My 1st thought is that it would be best to find a new wife who came from somewhere with warmer winters & better fishing like Arkansas or Florida, but, If you insist on staying with your current wife & want to catch something decent in IL, I think the lakefront gives you the best bang for the buck. Any of the harbors would have potential for winter brown trout & steelhead, perch as mentioned & depending on the harbor/location you choose, maybe some lake trout. Seems as though they are becoming more of a "thing" for winter shore anglers.
