Fished from 8:30-10:30 pm about a mile south of the dam on the west side of the river. Found a clearing to set up my catfishing poles. Caught one 24 inch channel cat, 5-6 lbs. Used nightcrawlers and Chicken Liver pre-packaged bait. Nightcrawlers has more success, with both the channel cat caught and a massive strike (but lost the fish).

Wow... Nothing???

No reports at all?

I went fishing two other times with nothing to show for.

I can't believe nobody is willing to report.

Fished last night for about 4 hours with a friend neer 31 and 20 ... No bites... Not even one. Have to get my boat out and scan the bottom to find some holes.

We used live suckers for bait.

Tight lines.

I'll try tonight.

Friend of mine found some bullhead below carpentersville dam but they were huge..(12-13") 

I'll buy some suckers at Lee's and try my luck somewhere in Elgin tonight and will report afterwards.

Tight lines everyone.

Gotta catch them In the river, illegal to catch somewhere else other than where you plan to use them and if there is a creel and size limit have to abide by that also ie:forest preserves. 

Let us know when you find those Bullhead....
