hookthis the biggest wallys I have ever seen come out of the Fox were at Yorkville, on yellow spinners and bluegill cranks. Last one I saw down there was easily over 26".

Yeah sadly I only have 22 photographed.

the others that I don't have photos of where either earlier in the year before I started wanting to catch as many species or couldn't get a photo cause my phone was dead.

At the end of the year I'll post a album of all the fish.

Some big ones I'm missing are rainbow trout, king salmon, coho salmon, walleye, muskie, flathead catfish, Bowfin, and many other harder to catch fish.

Yeah I might throw some rattling crankbaits there tomorrow. And I got a carp yesterday it was a little one but it counts got it out of the DuPage river

mikeyd I don't really fish for them around here but Busse Woods has some. There's some reports out there in the internet wonderland if you search for them.

Now my problem is I haven't got a walleye and I know it's startin to become a good time for them so I was wondering.

Has anybody caught any at blackwell? Have any tips? Or if anybody knows of any other good close places?

Also ps haven't gotten a carp yet either lol
No carp? How?

Anyways for walleye St. Charles dam is a great place. I have caught 1 or 2, and seen many more caught. Not sure if any sauger or saugeye are caught there.

You can get carp there, too. Mostly common carp.

The Chicago harbors have leather and mirror carp. Yorkville on the Fox I have heard you can get into grass carp.

I haven't really tried super hard cause I figured I would get lucky with one. I hooked into 2 really nice ones downtown but both snapped me off on the docks.

What do you use at the St Charles dam and also what season is best for walleyes
