Put in on the Fox River below the McHenry Dam around 3-4pm. Headed towards the dam and caught a nice pig white bass on my second cast using a 3" Gulp minnow. Should have quit while I was ahead. Work a bunch of channels and other than seeing a million carp nada. Worked swim baits, jigs, chatter baits, Gulp, in line spinners. I remember now how fickle the Chain and Fox are. Water today low 60's on the river and 64-67 in the channels. Can't understand while they wouldn't bite or why they weren't in the channels. Live bait guys on shore and other boater said the same. Tight lines.

These were caught on Sunday along with a handful of shorts. The 2 in the red boat were caught below the dam and the other one above. All were caught before noon.

Nice! I worked some jigs but no takers. Looks like the early bite was on. Nice work.

Went out Sunday afternoon. Fished Petite first, nothing, Tried everything we could throw and not one bite, swirl or fish spotted. Moved to Bluff trolling the channels through Spring lake. Just before entrance to Bluff had a 17.5 inch 3.5 pound smallmouth hit a baby one minus. biggest smallmouth I have seen or heard on on the Chain. In Bluff tried casting, nothing. Started trolling and found walleye and white bass on drop offs in 9 feet of water. Number 5 shad rap in crawdad color was the bait for the day. Tried jigging when we found fish trolling, nothing. Trolling that shad rap was the ticket for the day. Fish turned off when the rain hit.
