Kankakee, Des Plaines Cons. Area 6/22
 
Went out yesterday with some friends. We ended up not dropping the boat in the water till about 11:00am. The current was on the stronger side, almost too strong for where I wanted to fish. I had the trolling motor on full and it was inching up river. Bite was slow. We threw cranks the entire time. Lost a decent walleye and had a few small bass and cat. One of the least productive days Ive experienced there. The area just seems to be getting worse and worse these last few years.

Those are my home waters for the most part and last year was actually my best year ever in that stretch.

Well thats good news to hear. Might I get some insight to where you fish around the cons. area launch? I almost always move up river, Mainly to avoid the boat traffic and a-holes. Also what your typical baits?

I've been fishing the river for 15 +/- years and Its my typical first pick for fishing around the southern chicagoland area.

Edit- I also guess I should point out that last year was the only year I never got out on the water.. so of course its my luck that kank was really good the one year I don't fish :)9
