Default Help Shore Fishing? (Particularly Walleye)

Hey everyone!

I'm fairly new to fishing the Chicago-land area. I've fished places like the Lincoln Park Lagoon, the Kankakee River, retention ponds in Bolingbrook, and Salt Creek. That all said, I'm still learning when and where to fish. I have a pair of waders I have used, but are there any particularly good spots to explore?

I'm also hoping to catch a walleye this Spring/Summer as I've never caught one before. Is there anyplace accessible by shore around Chicago that I could get one? Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Read through the Fox River and Kankakee posts.
Even use the search feature to find posts on walleyes.

Having waders gives you a good advantage for good areas.
Look for current breaks and fish the edges of them.
If they are near deeper water that's even better.
