Kankakee, Des Plaines Cons. Area 6/24
Hit up Kankakee again today. Current is still extremely strong, as I expected with the storms. Was able to inch up river with the trolling motor. Hooked into a 5lb Drum on like my 2nd cast just before the train bridge. Then caught a couple smallies of no size on the current breaks around the bridge. Wasn't there long.
On a side note I watched a woman with a very long (25ft?) johnboat try and fly up river with her outboard and made it surprisingly far for having her prop so deep... she hit HARD though once she got to the usual very low rocky area between train bridge and 55 bridge. Boat was fine, she came back to talk to me after that. I then gave her a better understanding of the area to hopefully keep her safe.
