Tried a small lake near the house today....water was clear...talked to a guy out there and he stated that the last trip of the fall he notice a very green color to the water and weeds were not normal looking...or in normal areas...we drilled for 2 hours and never seen good weeds or fish...used to hold some good bluegill and crappie...been a few years...guess I need to spend more time there and relearn it....LOL

You don't need the stamp to fish there, however, if you do happen to catch a nice trout or salmon you won't be able to keep it. I would just get the stamp. It's only a couple bucks more.

When fishing the harbors, do you need any type of stamps? Or is just the basic fishing license ok as long as I don't target trout?

Who ever told you that there weren't any big fish in Skokie Lagoons was wrong. There are plenty of big bass, catfish,carp and walleyes, the key is putting in the work to find them.

That is Skokie Lagoons, but I'm not from that area and I've never fished there. Your best bet would probably be fishing the harbors of Lake Michigan.

I think it might actually be the skokie lagoons? Right by Winnetka golf course? I just heard today from someone that there arn't very big fish in there but who knows, he might not know anything... I just moved to the Winnetka area and I am looking for good spots to fish, any help would be great!

FishnGolfn- Can you be a little more specific on the location of the lake in question? Maybe the town name and nearest major intersection.

Anybody fish here? Is this the river/lake along forest way rd? I'm not from the area and drove past and looked like it has some good fishing with lots of structure! I'm might go try this place out if I can get some info, but I googled it and didn't find much Crying
