Default Pig Bonanza in St Charles Saturday afternoon

I hit St Charles and fished from Indian St. up to the dam. I tried an assortment of lures but they were hammering a small Husky Jerk. At one point, I pulled a 19.5" and two 18 "ers out of the same eddy. In all I landed about 25 smallies. It was a blast! Nice hearing applause behind me when I made it to the dam! I pulled 4-5 out in one spot on successive casts. The biggest one there was 14". Here are a few pics of the bigger fish.

Nice. Been awhile since I fished the Fox. There were plenty of days during the summer where one could pick off numerous fish from a single eddy.

Epic is definitely the description! Best day on the Fox in over 20 years fishing it. All in about a 3 hour span. I lost several and finally a big smallie broke me off. Every go to bait I tried after in the same spots came up empty with the exception of my Panther Martin, however that seemed to get me nothing but dinks, so I packed it in around 6:30 pm.
