See "Northern Illinois Lakes & Ponds" section for my report WITH PICS!!
I know it's early, but I'm already planning for my visit with the in-laws on Memorial Day. I absolutely cannot rely on my father-in-law to know anything about where to fish, even if it were in his backyard, so I turned to this site, and I have not been disappointed! Excellent information everywhere, and a good crowd.
The in-laws live in Plainfield, so I figure the Dupage is my best bet for getting away for a few quick hours. I think they may even have a subdivision pond in their backyard too. As long as I can get into some bass it'll be worth the 6 weeks of anticipation. I'll be sure to post the results when the time comes.
By the way, if anyone happens to be heading out my way (western Mass.), feel free to drop in on my regular site, www.MAanglers.com
. A small but very friendly crowd.
