FishermanMarcus, start with google maps and you can see several access points as it crosses roads. I haven't tried many. Part of the fun is checking out the different locations. I didn't have a boat until now, so most of my fishing is either wading or from shore on small rivers..

Fished the Des Plaines today. I had a little time after a meeting with a nearby client. I was amazed. I got 7 northerns in 45 minutes. All on a classic beatle spin. A couple were dinks. Four were 22-23". The biggest was 28". The bigger ones were a challenge considering I was using a UL pole with 4# test line. It made them fun to catch. They are all still swimming.

Had to get crap done around the house here until 5:00, so I went out with my buddy Jake and shot 1 carp to release some aggression! Then we sat on the shore watching a couple poles and caught 5 more carp in about 1.5hrs. Off to catch some bass and perch today!!

My brother shot 2 carp and missed a bunch too. I caught 5 carp hook and line for catfish bait and the garden. The shooting was tuff because the water was too murky and higher than usual.
