State Park and Bourbonnais this week
Made it to the river a couple nights this week. Managed 3 smallies at the State Park and four in Bourbonnais. Fish were scattered. I picked up all fish in deeper slack areas adjacent to faster water.
Most came on Case 3" helgies drifted 1/4rd downstream bouncing off the bottom. I caught a real nice one on a Panther Martin casted upstream and retrieved thru the breaks just under the surface. I also caught one on a Black and Gold Rapala.
Have a couple pics of the bigger ones. Most were less than 12". I'll post pics later.
I was wading. Still learning the areas and where fish are holding right now. The floating algea makes it tough, but if you find the right areas, it's not a problem.
