Got to get out on the Illinois River a little bit last night to try to find some stripers. They really haven't turned on yet, but it should be very soon. After the first few spots failed to produce, we finally found what we were after. We only managed 4 of them, and no big ones quite yet. They should really be on by next week I'm guessing. Bonus fish were a few decent 15-16" smallies and the first bluegill I've ever seen caught out of the Illinois. Oh, and a snagged asian carp.
