MOON PHASE (33%)
Waxing Crescent

 (for Monday 11-12) water was 42 degrees

Fished most of the cribs on the shoreline going north from the ramp up to the no motor zone cribs then crossed over to campground cribs. About ready to go home and get warm but finally found them in the campground cribs.  1/4 oz jig with smaller silver glitter skirt.  Had to work the jig very very methodically and lightly jigging almost like I was ice fishing.  they weren't hammering it, just a slight tick. NO ONE else was out there when I was there. (11-4) too lazy to post pics so hopefully facebook link works. caught 11 took home limit of 10. Thank you Veterans

Looking to head to Shabbona for the first time this Saturday. Looking to catch crappie, bluegill and walleye. Any suggestions on lures, bait or any hot spots?

Fished 10/27.  Beautiful day and about 15 boats out.  We trolled for muskie for 3 hours with no luck.  Spotted walleye on the Humminbird.  Water was very flat, almost no wind.  Talked to some other fisherman who had some luck with crappie (small), a few bass and an 18" muskie.
