If LaSalle opens up anytime soon or opening day any year, try these two spots for hybrids. The southeast corner and northeast corner of the main lake. From the parking lot it is a 2 mile walk to the southeast corner and 3 miles to the northeast corner; nice hike. It will be crowded with shore fishermen and boats but that is where you are going to catch them. You can slay them with liver, or for a challenge try rattle baits, spoons or body baits. You can find YouTube videos from previous years. Back in the late 80's and early 90's you could get the hybrids just about anywhere but those areas are where they congregate now.
Did anyone who reads this, have the opportunity in the late 80's, just after it opened to go LaSalle in the winter? There was a small parking lot on the north side of the lake right along the discharge channel. The guys I used to go with have all passed away, but everyday in the discharge channel was like opening day. But that wasn't good enough for some people who had to press it and sneak right up to the plant. That led to closing the gate forever. Although, with as foggy as it is I'm sure it would pose a security problem now.
