I guess it could have been a sculpin instead of a goby. I did not check the pectoral fins. Either way, they both are reported to be in the River. I will check next time. Smile

Tried from the wall again in the park. A little more action observed and experienced. Caught two saugers but both under size limit. I also caught 4 goby and 2 sticks. Saugers were on minnows and jig heads. Maybe in a few more weeks things will get better.

Tried my luck off the wall at Starved Rock from, 10 to 3. It was a nice day and the bald eagles were around but not a single fish. There were about a dozen people there and I did not see anyone catching. Saw two people leave with a couple but not sure when they caught them. River is low. May have to wait a little more for the sauger to run.

Fished out of Spring Valley Yesterday. The wind was brutal at times. 4-6 other boats at the clam beds & under the bridge. Few bites here and there. Slow. Boated 1 keeper at 17" and a shorty. Fished with chartreuse plastic / heavy jig head and minnow.
