Default Kankakee

8/27 and 29

River levels are at least a foot higher than what I would like to see going into the fall, and were on the rise this afternoon, clarity maybe 10". Catfished middle and lower park 10pm-1am both nights, used cutbait along secondary breaks. Bite wasn't bad, eight cats 5-8lbs, but my hooking % was poor. What do you catfisherman use hookwise for cutbait??





23" walleye on cut bait, thats a first.


three nasty bastards up to 34"

9/7
Fished middle park 5:30-7:30pm. I haven't been on the river in a week due to high levels and poor visibility, water is dropping slowly and clarity is still less than 6". Concentrated in quicker current 2-4ft deep where there are large rocks that create a change in flow.
Used 1/8 and 3/16oz weighted hooks w/ various plastics, 4" skirted split tail grubs worked the best, dark in color. Fish were off the bank at least 25ft and short cross current casts were most productive. Ended up with nine fish 15"-18", the bite was better than I expected, but the levels make it a pretty rough wade.

Slim shady, I don't think any fish comparable in size puts up a fight like those brown guys!!

9/8
Fished middle park 6:30-8pm.(between Warner and Willow rapids) Worked numerous breaks created by patches of willow, threw a few diff crankbaits and some plastics. Got around six bites all on plastics in the faster water outside of the breaks. Landed one bass around 14",(just enough to burn the skunk!) and lost a walleye in the upper 20s while I was trying to grab it in the swift current. Conditions already suck but with heavy rains forecasted wed and thurs they will only get worse!

Fall might be a washout at this rate. It needs to quit raining, but then again it might keep away the hammertime bucket brigade.

Just make sure the bathtub is running good!! As much as I hate fishing out of a boat on the river, it may be the best option if the rain continues. At least we will be able to admire the minnow buckets and bobbers as you part the river in that barge.
ALLRIGHT STOP, _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _!
