kishwaukee report 9-30-06
belvidere park area, got around 10 smallies, probably 5 or 6 rock bass as well.
then i went to the countyline area and tossed in some shiners.
i got a couple small smallies, then a few small largemouth.
then a 9" pike!!!!
that was pretty cool.
finally, i got a HUGE smallie.
only thing is, he was a hair of 12" long. go figure. he was a football.
haven't they already spawned? what was the deal? usually river smallies, specially around here, don't look like the football i reeled in. what would it have been? literally just eating that much before winter?
got a pic, the thing looks enormous for how short it is.
if anyone is interested let me know.
fought like **** too!
