Default Have to get this forum going again!

Ah, this is the time of year when we starting thinking about good 'ol Lasalle and big blues! I'm already trying to figure out how I'm going to get some fresh cut bait for the new season.

Waiting for them to post the 2013 opening and hours....usually mid-March.

Speaking of LaSalle Lake I was wondering since the lake takes in water from the Illinois River are they doing anything to keep the darn Asian carp from getting into the lake

I have done that when I'm desperate.....not as good as a fresh panfish though.

I'm sure there's strainers/filters on the intake end of those pumps. Otherwise, fish would either damage the pumps or become sushi!

Sounds funny but cut gold fish work well for big cats. Ive never used them on lasalle but theyve worked elsewhere. Don't use them alive. Plus it's halfway cheap bait.

I emailed the DNR, and as usual our lovely State doesn't have anyone to open Lasalle up yet for March 15th. Could be a delay for the opening. Thanks Gov. Quinn..............

Any word on if it's opening Friday yet? I called the DNR twice today and no answer. Apparently they, unlike some of us, get the weekend off.
