Default Grant Creek Area or Backwaters?

I was driving today in the Desplaines Cons area on West River Rd. in Wilmington or Channahon and I noticed 2 bodies of water on both sides of the road and alot of people fishing from the road, that dead ends at the abandoned looking marina. Everybody advised they caught a skunk..lol. I found out later that the area was grant creek and the desplaines river on the marina side. I was thinking about trying grant creek from the road. What can I expect to catch in this area? and what bait should I try? and can I launch a 19ft boat in this area? This is the area below. Thanks for replies.. Missdeamenor

Never been there myself, but a fella I work with says he gets good fish from that area. The usual -sunfish, bass, cats.
He said this year, he has caught a few bowfin, -thought they were snakeheads.
I would like to get out there and target bowfin, I think they are an unappreciated predator, worthy of pursuit.
