A few more...

Today was a much better day than Friday afternoon. Started out on the river, and fishing was lousy, so I decided to head east up the drainage canal, see how close I could get to the dam in Wind Lake, and do a bit of exploring...
I ran into a rather impressive green wall of duckweed, about a half mile east of Dover Line Road - there was no getting past it LOL!!
So I backtracked about a mile west down the canal, picked a random spot and started fishing. The canal was man-made in the 30s, there is no structure, it’s basically similar structure to a giant culvert...
With the exception of not catching any walleye, was one of the better days of the year out there. Caught Cats, Drum, Gills, and around a dozen small Smallies, maybe around 12 inches or so.
The bite was pretty consistent, and the nature / quiet was just awesome, I was in the middle of nowhere, didn’t see any boats, hear any cars, nothing but peace and quiet, was just awesome.
Used Carolina Riggs and crawler halves for everything but the Gills. For them it was just a bobber and worm, fairly tight to shore.
Was definitely a great way to spend a Sunday!
It was a good day to be a worm in the Fox River today lol.
Fished hard for 3.5 hours and only caught 3 fish...
A tiny Smallie, a Kitty, and a little Warmouth.
Was a quiet day boat wise, didn’t see a single soul, not even a kayak!
I really thought today would be good, with the colder weather - thought they’d have the feed bag on!
when do the whitebass start up again?
Thanks Hess. It is a glitch.
That’s not it Mr. Bass lol...
That happens when you name your pic the same as some else had... It will show the first photo with that name that was posted.
Rename your original photo, save, and repost. It’s a glitch in the system.
It would be better if they were released into the lake above the dam. Deeper water more food. CARPIO
ok thats a decent channel n a nice whitebass. I catch huge cats out same area ive only seen 2 flathead out of river in this area and they are tiny n really dark.
