The place to go is under the bridge that is on the fox and anchor (right next to the high school). That is a great spot for catfish off the bottom. Also under the bridge that goes over the south side where the fox and illinois river come together is a good spot for walleye and sauger.

Anything biting? Coming down from Wi. again for the weekend and want to go fishing with the grandson. He is only 4 so we do not care what we would catch. Would not keep any thing any way.Any info appreciated. Is there any other places to fish in the area? He lives in Marseilles.

Fished in a white bass tournament on Saturday with about 50 boats. We caught only 2 fish and the top boat only caught 6. Mine were caught at the Marsielles locks on green jigs. Most of the guys did not catch anything. I talked to other guys and they said they were catching smallmouth. Water was muddy and strong current.

tookd a ride to the park in ottawa, there were abt. 20 trlers parked and only 7 boats fishing at bridge where foxl comes in. saw couple of what looked like stripers pulled in but couldnt see any walleyes boated but probably missed some only there and hour. I thought sure there would be a posting from someone as to how they did or where the other 15 boat s were. I enjoyu reading abut what ohters cought when i can t get out. lets have some reports guys.thanx
