Finally got out for smallies in the Elgin area yesterday from 3:00 to 5:00PM and was not dissapointed. I was fishing a backflowing eddy with a 1/32 jig and large fathead.the fish were stacked in a pocket about 8ft in diameter. there were many short hits which resulted in using many minnows.
9 smallies with the average size being 14in and the largest being 18in (lets see if I can beat last years with 25 over 18in)

Hey Craig S.
Where in Elgin ??? I live right off Randall Rd--8 miles North of Elgin (about a 1/2 hour), and would like to come down and give it a try.
