Thanks! :)


Continuation of weather conditions from yesterday. Cold, windy, rainy. River jumped overnight and clarity is non-existent. Three tedious hours yielded a half dozen smallies. Had to bounce the 3/8th oz jig and 4" grub off of their noses to trigger the bite. They were willing, but it was difficult for them to locate the lure.

Brutally windy, rainy at times. Gusts made feel, casting, and even standing still at times challenging. Had to use a 3/8th oz jig to help keep contact with my grub. Smallies didn't seem to mind my plight one bit. They were actively feeding. Walked some of my go to shore spots and ended up with six smallies and a rock bass.

Are you guys stocking Hidden Lake yet?  Thinking about coming out there on Friday after work.

Yes you  are correct Dog. The trout came from Hidden Lakes Bolingbrook. I work in the bait shop and we did flood in the fall and in the winter.

I am a little curious I don't want the location of your honey hole but were the trout caught upstream or down stream from Bolingbrook?

I have a little tip for everyone some of our escaped trout are in Whalon lake. I caught one last season pushing 3lbs. The shad diet really fattens them up!  

Stay safe and as always "Keep Your Lines Wet"!

Yeah they washed into the river during the October flooding last year. I don't reckon they'll survive the summer which is a pity because they're a heck of a lot of fun and they grew quite a bit over the winter.

The best action this morning predictably came from the trout. They put on some weight over the winter. Got five in a stretch of less than ten yards. Also got a small smallmouth and green sunfish, and spotted a very lethargic largemouth and bullfrog. Very cold and iced guides were a constant issue.
