Pantera: sent u a pm.
Wonder Lake, McHenry County
Pantera, trying for next weekend.. kid wants to go to Indiana for fireworks :( and its fathers day lol they don't realize don't wanna cook out don't wanna have people over.. just wanna be left alone and GO fishing! My oldest boy did get a muskie one year, only about 15 inches. Surprised the f-ck outta me. Trying to get the sticker for the boat.. long story tty later about it.. almost forgot to tell u guys my friend had catfish following his spinner bait in. Another never seen that before!
P.s: Username thanks for teaching an old dog something new lol. Admirable about trying to get different species. WATCH out fishing below the dam. No parking and the spillway is off limits.... theres a creek NORTH of the Old Mill, not the little store.. forgot what its called.. kayak launch i think is allowed.. check into it. Looked good years ago. And yes we'll try to get together.. only get up there a couple times a month. Tight lines guys.
Pantera hows Luv2fsh doing?
photo of my daughter biggest northern she caught in Minnesota so far! Proud Dad!
In regards to fishing, lifelisting is when one tries to catch new species and document the catch (e.g. taking pictures) by doing so, constantly growing the list of caught species.
I'd like to get together sometime.
On the avatar is a smooth dogfish, a small species of shark I caught a couple of years ago (not in Wonder Lake ).
Username, there are pike in Wonder.. few and far between.. grass pickerel or any pickerel nada.. ice fishing i think is the best time ( my thoughts) got 1 on the wall in cottage around 10lbs. Golden roach thru the ice. Sometimes throwing lures with no leader have bite offs?? Anyways pertaining to ice fishing when u get cold ur done! Lol. I have a boat and ice gear... gotta get together sometime.
Ps nice pic for your avatar.. what kindo fish is that. Really like its eye lol! Eyelashes?
pss: life-lister? What is that?
Species hunt is my hobby. I really get excited when I catch a new kind of fish. Are there life-listers in Wonder Lake?
But it seems I caught almost all kinds of game and pan fish that lives in the lake except pike and pickerel (not sure if they are there). I will try microfishing this summer and will try to catch some small kinds in which nobody is interested in.
Also will try the creek up the dam in hope of something new.
But every weekend I just try to catch a variety and a little for the frying pan.
I don't have a boat. Was introduced to ice-fishing this year by my relatives. Would say I loved it if not the freezing cold. Still will go the next season.
P. S. For me, too, dough bait works better than anything else right now.
Yeah Pantera used to catfish a LOT up there. Chicken livers.. made spawn sacks with the ol' ladies nylons! Lol. Got tired of getting killed by mosquitoes at nite.. worked great. Wedding this weekend thats not bad its the reception that gets ya! Still have fillets for ya.. hoping b4 the 4th again.. keep in touch and tight lines.
ps wtf are you talking about being old, young man.. " if your not living your dying" some crazy bastar- said that to me a year ago lol. Remember?

Username:'cool good to see some new input on the site, seems only a few post their reports.. Pantera is always on the lake and on lake link,if he's not incapacitated.... ;) LOL good one to take notes from.. whats ur primary fish u target? Wonders a decent lake to fish BUT can get hectic on the summer weekends. Its all good guess skiers need their time. Summertime fishing is right b4 sun up and b4 sundown anyways. Do u have a boat? And lastly ice fishing?
Ps Pantera catfish on...wonder bread... LMFAO
