Default Braidwood Lake

Gonna head up to the wood after work. Should be fishing by 8 am. Anyone have a recent temperature(within the last week) for hot and cold sides? Thinking I'll just launch at the north ramp. Thanks in advance, I'll attach a report(hopefully with pics) sometime soon. Might be after the long weekend. Good luck out there guys and of course everyone be safe and responsible out on those vessels. Watch out for yahoos this weekend

Fished from 9am til 1pm Friday morning/afternoon. Hot side was 95 degrees. Cold side was 85. Caught fish in flurries, maybe 6 at a time then that would be it til we found another school of 12"ers. At least 20 bass total all under 15" though. Funny to see the guys sit there and try to gaurd the spots where the schools were. Had a rather ugly incident involving a couple 20 somethings and us catching "their" fish that I would rather not share on here. That being said, caught fish on jigs, senkos, and rattle traps. They probably woulda bit anything you threw in there though, it was just a matter of running into the fish

Fished from 6 to about 11 on friday. Stayed far away from those groups as much as I could but it was unavoidable at times. Caught 12 fish best 3 were all about this size

Nice fish.
Have run into the A holes myself. Wonder if it is the same a holes or multiple groups of A holes.

Can you explain you catching "their" fish 87? If they were there first, they may have a beef... How close did you get?

It's my opinion that an angler has a right to his spot within reason.

Not sayin', just askin'....

Glad Braidwood opens soon as I do not stand on ice. Here is a keeper from last March on a cold but nice day.

Nice Braidwood bass

I will probably give it a try a few times in early March.
