Good Friday Fishing
I fished the Fox River 3/25/05. I started out at Batavia at 7:00am. I worked some eddies by the dam. I just snagged a carp here, I didn't land it. I seen some waders coming up stream. I went the other direction. I worked some eddies down to the Clark Island area. I had 1 hit, but that hit was a good one, a nice walleye, and fat. I caught her on a 1/16th oz. jig and 3 inch chartreuse trailer. I didn't have a tape measure, but I put her next to my rod. She went from the bottom cork to the first guide. Later, when I came home, I measured that distance at 19 inches. That was the only fish here.
I work some eddies in North Aurora, nothing. Snagged a carp. Got back a scale. Not what I'm after. I worked Ferson creek, nothing. The water temp here was 42 F. The back bay was 44 F. I thought I might have a chance with a couple degees higher water temp, but nothing again. Worked some water at Elgin, nothing. I went back to my stopping grounds at C-ville. I got one hit on a drop shot rig. Missed that fish. Tried a lindy rig twister, nothing. Tried dabbling with a gitzit, nothing. I got sick of all the nothing that I went home.
I worked from 7:00am to 2:30pm, 7.5 hours of fishing with only 1 fish coming at 9:26am. Was in worth it. Yes, I would say so.
Until next time, good luck and good fishing.
