Aroma park 5/18 and 5/19
Hit aroma park this past weekend from the wing dam at ryans peir and upstream to the elks. Smallies were really active! Really active! They were around rock shorelines and the chanel mouth down stream from the elks. We threw cranks, spinners, n texas rig craws with no luck to start. Then i tied on spot remover jig with a white swim fluke jr n look out! We got a total of about 30 or more in two days. The biggest was 17". The smallies were chasing baitfish on the surface then we would throw into a swirl and bam hang on! We had a blast on a stretch of river that we had to ourselves again! Saturday the swim fluke bite slowed so i put on a 5" black powerbait shakey worm n they started biting again! The smallie bite is on chicagoland! Tight lines!
If yer headed over the wing dam be careful the k3 river is at a good level but wing dam is only about 8-9" from the surface. Stay to east side where dam is broken and go slow, lots of big boulders hard to see in fast cloudy water.
