Early birds for Whites say The White bass bite when the bleeding heart bush blooms. Try saying that real fast! Anyone know if the launch is open at Starved Rock yet? Was flooded over before.

Stopped by Starved Rock for a few hours yesterday in the afternoon. Not too many anglers out and only saw one fish caught off the side wall. Small Striped bass. Water seemed low. Myself lost more minnows to the snags than bites. At least it was not raining.

Anyone go looking for the Asian carp? Or have them find you? I was checking out the bow fishing association of Il and they talk of launching out of S Rock and heading toward the Vermillion. I've wanted to do this for years and this year my BIL and I are going to do it on fathers day weekend while in Morris visiting family. Plan on taping the trip. Batter up. Anyone have any experiences with em?

I was out Sunday the 10th, fished Starved Rock dam 7:00am to 9:00 am caught 2 Sauger, both 17-18 inches. Caught 4 whities 10-12 in. I fished mostly with blades, the water is still to cold for the blade baits. Lots of boats fishing the main channel for eyes and sauger. We tried the Vermillion and snagged a asian Sad. We also got a couple of whities. Water is pretty clear. I'm trying for Weds. morning. I like the pier they put in at Starved Rock. Does any one know if the state did that or one of the clubs? Tight lines everyone. Gemman
