Fished this past Saturday. launched the boat on the south end at 9:30, surprised to see only about (10) trailers in the lot. Caught several small largemouth. Then I went to my wiper spot around 12:30 and found them. Caught about (12). Below video of the trip

Fisher south shore this morning.   Guys around me were catching some small cats, I was getting some decent gills and my little guy got this carp.   Friendly group was cheering him on.  Nice day out.

Walked the south shore today for a few hours. Caught 4 largemouth (lost 2) on zip lures and rattle traps. All were 13" or 14".

The south launch was packed today with boats launching and retrieving. Guys were parking trailers in the overflow lot...

Everybody from shore was picking off fish here and there. One gent had a nice 8 lb Channel cat in his cooler.

I even had a brand new Rapala ripstop float up to me on shore ! Describe it and I'll mail it back to you.

Fishing is always hit or miss during the late summer/early fall. Some lakes that are often overlooked this time of the year are cooling lakes. They receive lots of pressure when the open in early spring, but the pressure dwindles to near nothing at the end of the season. We went to Braidwood lake on Saturday. The catfish here are always very aggressive. You can see on the video how hard they initially hit the plug. It's a lot of fun! I was hoping to fish LaSalle, but the wind forecast was 15+ for Saturday so went to Braidwood. The state stopped wiper stocking for 2 years, so the action here is all cats. They are very fun to catch! The cooling lakes here close on October 13th. So anyone in the chicagoland area looking for some consistent action now, get on out!
