After learning Heidecke is closed looks like I will be fishing here instead. Is there a launch fee or sticker required to fish Braidwood?  Is trolling effective on this body of water?


Thank you in advance

Tough day yesterday with that east wind.  Really roughed up the lake.  We were able to only get one on a white spinner bait.  Guys targeting catfish were doing well.  

Nice 2.5 lb female ready to spawn.  Bloody tail and a big 'ole belly.

Hit the lake early on 4/12 and knew it was going to be a challenge with the wind from the start. Any bank where we could fish plastics, we won. Fish were tight to the shore and would hit on the fall or within a few bumps of the rod. Also got them on wind blown banks with spinners and chatter baits. Total of 6 keepers and if we were weighing a tournament we would of had a 12+ bag. Got a stern reminder of navigating the lake as I dinged my freshly tuned prop when we went from 12 fow to 2 Fow in nothing flat. Thank goodness it was at idle and minimal damage.  I think we would have each boated 5+ limits if we didn’t have to contend with the wind but it was so bad that in most places you couldn’t control the boat or feel your line. Spoke to a few other boats out and they were having a much tougher time.
