Fishing here has been as slow as the water is for this time of year. Horrible. I did catch 1 buffalo last time I was out, on a jig and plastic in the mouth of all things, happens ocassionally. Still surprised by the number of guys down here this year for how slow its been, but water is low everywhere and slow for fishing.

Fun to follow your quest for 50. Have you caught all of them from shore? The last 10 will be tough. I couldn't tell exactly all what fish you had caught but didnt think I saw musky, yellow bass, white crappie, gar, brown bullhead, sauger, or quillback. You might want to try Beaver Dam lake, it has most of those species, plus suckers. River below lake is option also. Whenever you decide to tackle yellow bass I can let you know a lake that is a guarantee.

I wasn't targeting them, but I caught a couple Channel Catfish. I want to catch a white sucker to add to my list of different species caught. I think it's too early for the sucker run, plus I'm not even sure if they run the Rock River.

Catfish are biting good below the dam today seen a lot of guys keeping some nice sized fish, gotta watch out not to get crossed up with the group snagging carp . I only cleaned up a bags worth of trash when i arrived other than the usuall 2 or 3 , not too often the weather is nice this late in the year might as well take advantage of it !
