Default LOCAL STRIP PITS CECO CLUB

Fished CECO Club today from around 9:00 am till 4:30 pm. Very slow morning. Caught 13 bass between the two of us and lost a couple. Most were 10" - 12". Did catch one 21" and a couple of 15 inchers. Caught 2 fish in the first 1/2 hr, didn't get another bite until 2:30 and caught 11 bass in the last couple of hrs we fished. Caught everything on jigs and plastic. Mine all came on dark blue / light blue power craws or Yamamoto Creature baits. My partner caught all his on purple power craws or tubes. Most were 4 to 8 ft deep, half came out of wood cover

15 1/2" bass


21" bass Fish was very skinny, only weight 3 1/2LBS

What does CECO stand for? Is it private or public?
Nice fish by the way.

I had the same question.
Looks nice from the background though.

Commonwealth Edison Company. As high as my wife gets the electric bill I should be able to fish there too. Used to crappie fish there but that was 25 years ago.

BreyeAN is correct. It is very private club open to Commonwealth Edison and N I Gas employees only. Very limited membership Located between the Coal City Rec club and Area One club near Coal City, a couple miles south of Dresden cooling lake. Real nice strip pits as they were one of the first strip pits - dug with steam shovels. Lots of shallower water compared to the later pits that were dug by the big scoops. I am fortunate to have a good friend & and fishing partner who is a member.
