Starved Rock 4/15
Fished from 8 till noon on Tuesday morning. Launched from Starved Rock and ran to the I-39 bridge. I marked fish immediatly but just wasnt able to get them to commit. The water was 53-54 degrees with I'd say 6 inches of visibility. I was pulling 3 ways with a floating rapala size 9. Tried to get minnows but didnt realize that Cajun's is closed now. I ran further up to the barge staging area and fished the inside and outside bend. Marked several fish but they did end up being asain carp. I found out when I made a couple more passes over them with the side imager. Hope to get out again this weekend and try it again. Original plan was to run to the clam beds and work my way back to Starved Rock but the ADD got me and I spent to much time messing around at the I39 bridge.
