DesPlaines Conservation Area
New to the forum....
My husband and I have been fishing in the Desplaines Conservation Area recently. Today we were out from about 3 pm to 8 pm. Many smallies and one cat. No keeper sizes, biggest was 13" smallie. All caught to the east of the railroad bridge except one. The cat was caught on a power bait (tried nightcrawlers without success). The smallies were on crawfish luers.
Does anyone have any suggestions for bigger bites? We have tried different times of the day and tonite seemed to be the best of all.
Thanks in advance!!
