Default Fishing help

HI all, I live in Channahon and have easy access to the Illinois River. Been out several times had have no luck finding anything but Gar. I used to live to live in the Cal river lake Calumet area and had a ton of success there.the water here looks like it should hold lots of bass, they just seem to be eluding me? anybody know where to go from the Morris or Big basin launch?TIA

Hey man. Where are you regularly finding gar on the IL?

I find them both very challenging and tasty. You have to be very, very patient to get one on a hook and line.

Re: Bass on the IL, never caught any. With all the asian carp, I'd expect there to be a lot of pressure on the base of the food chain.
