Default Winter BLUES are over.. Dupage River 2/10

So I woke up this morning and decided to head the the river to one of my spots. I had my spinning gear and a bag of Twisters. I worked the river for about an hour and managed these nice smallies. All fish were taken all over the river. I thought that they would be stacked in an area but I was catching them near shore, shallow and deep. I had about 6 fish total 3 Dinks and then these. on fish is pictured twice.

Enjoy.

Very nice! I've been out on the Fox a few times already looking for my first smallie of the year and still haven't hooked up. Largemouth and white bass, but no smallies.
