Default Spring scouting mission

Thought you might enjoy a bit of video scouting for spots on the Fox the other day, was pretty nice to get out before this cold snap. So much for spring.

I've only fished the Fox below the Dayton dam, some of the best catfishing I've seen. Used shad along current breaks, all channels but I am sure there were flatheads around.

I've never fished the lower Fox, I've spent most of my time on the middle between Batavia and West Dundee. However, I used to occasionally fish around Algonquin when we lived there for a few years.

There's some good boating water in those pools on the middle Fox.

I spent most of my time between algonquin and the Chain O' Lakes. Shawn that is some prime cat real estate you have there. I'm looking forward to dipping a few lines in the next couple of weeks. Thanks.
