Thinking about doing a little night fishing a couple times this week. Was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on spots to try and trolling vs jigging or deadsticking

The deeper water crappie and white bass bite is turning on. Been doing well with jigging spoons and dead sticked live bait. Bluegills are in shallows on ice jigs. Muskies are moving a bit deeper now on a variety of baits like cranks, rubber, and glides. The crappie bite will only get better as it gets colder. The muskies will be putting on the feedbag and it's the time for a possible Illinois giant. The local bass bite is still good as well

Late report from Sunday. Spent the morning on Chanel and Catherine catching white bass after white bass in 18fow. No size to any of them, averaged about 8", but the schools were huge. Moved south in the afternoon and found crappies up shallow. They weren't schooling and it was one here and one there. Big one was 13" and the rest 9-1/2 to 10"

Got out on Marie yesterday evening. Got out late so didnt have much time but managed a couple nice crappies, a few strippers and one nice eye. Slowly drifted from about 15 ft up into the shallows the eye was in about 7 ft. All fish released to fight another day.

Anyone use the launch at Oak Park to fish Pistakee Bay? Curious what condition it’s in. Thanks

Hi guys I’m taking my son camping this weekend and was wondering if the panfish had started to move into the channels never really fished open water up there so really wouldn’t even know where to begin in open water I’ll be in a boat. Thanks for any info
