Just the smart trout are left ! All the easy ones have been taken ! hopefully with weather warming up next two days, there might be a bug hatch , and get some of these smart ones near the surface on the bite !

Fished Banana Lake today for trout from 8am to 1130am. Not even a bump ! Saw about 12 guys fishing for trout, and game warden said nobody had caught one yet around 10am. Tried powerbait, spinners, and kastmaster , nothing ! Talked to Jim at Salmon Shop, in Palatine. He said there is better action at the Hollows, fishing with wax worms under a slip bobber, and just cast out and twitch ! The good news is both lakes have trout averaging 1 1/2 lbs. each !
