Default LaSalle report {pics}

I got out to LaSalle the other day and the wind did not disappoint .
While I was readying my boat at the launch, I noticed that I had forgotten my my two boxes of LaSalle specific lures in the basement .

I put in a good half day's effort, and my results were so-so at best.

Fog was heavy in the early a.m. as was the wind. Treacherous.









I caught a few 2 or 3 pound blues, but no big fish. BTW, those small fiddler cats up in the rocks are bigger now. There are plenty of 12"+ fish to catch and clean if you're interested in a fish fry...





All my best fish were caught on a #9 jointed shadrap.
The sheepshead were biting fine.

I was by myself and stayed nice and dry .
The first couple of pics don't look too bad, but there were swells everywhere and the wind was swirling around. Then the fog lifted and the wind died down, then started blowing again, then died down etc.etc.

Finally around 2:00pm a steady, strong wind started blowing from the North, so I left.

That lake was built to catch the wind, and is does not disappoint. Every time I have been there its been windy.

Agreed. I wanted to be on LaSalle today, but last minute family concerns kept me off the water...
I don't work tomorrow, but with the wind as forecasted, I'll stay home.

It might be time for some Braidwood shore fishing.

I have asked Superfluke many, many, times to try LaSalle and give it a chance...

He is a bass fisherman, plain and simple. There are Largemouth {and Smallmouth} to be had on LaSalle, but they can be difficult to locate. {A Largemouth fisherman already knows the few areas on LaSalle where they hang out}.

Braidwood, of course, would be a much better choice for him. Though he's already had a negative experience on that lake scratching his boat at the south launch...

I think that unfortunate experience has soured him on all the cooling lakes.
