Hit the water at around 8:15 and had a great day. Got 6 keepers the largest being 17 inches and weighed 3.0lbs. Caught about a dozen under 15 inches. They were up against the rocks in calm water. (I sure could have used these fish on tournament day). They weren't hitting very hard. For the most part the hits alomst felt like a snag. So when in doubt, set the hook.
I have no problem telling you what I caught them on. They were caught on chartreuse rattle traps and deep diving crank baits. Let me know if you want to get together sometime and I'd be happy to meet up with you and fish Braidwood.
