Upper fox river on 6-5-2016 6:30 am till around 5:30pm. boat traffic was just terrible on the river made it very hard to fish. Did land around 10 bass total and this cat fish. All caught on shiners and small strike king cranks. Cat was caught on a large shiner. I just cant believe the size of some of these boat on this small body of water. One boat with a bunch of teenagers went flying pass are bass boat only 20 feet away from us and almost capsized the boat I have a 15 foot flat bottom bass boat, how can the DNR allow these boats to go this fast on the river is beyond me. Picture of the cat. Please be careful out there people.

Started out yesterday fishing the river at 07:00 hours. We fished brush piles up and down the river from Port Barrington to Algonquin with 1/32oz jig heads and crappie minnows. The morning started out super cold with the first hard freeze of the year, but picked up as the sun came up. We had a consistent bite all day, but no real size to show for the effort. We caught 31 Crappies all 6-8", 9 Bluegills, 6 tiny Perch, and I lost count of how many 12" or less Bass we caught. It was a great day on the water and I hope the size picks up this week. Just a quick reminder while your out on the water: The Hazard buoys on the west side of the river down from the Fox River Forest Preserve have been removed for the season. I had to pull a fellow boater off of the sand bar he had gotten stuck on, just remember to be safe and tight lines!
