Were the fish you caught sunday full of spwan? I am just being curious because I caught only 1 fish on saturday worth keeping and it had eggs in it. I don't like keeping them that way but I do like to eat a few once in a while. What did you catch your fish on? I caught mine using a lindy rig drifting where the vermillion and the illinois meet in deep water 18 feet. Had a lot of bites but did not even feel most of them. Tried jigs same result lots of minnows chewed up but the fish were not swallowing the minnow.

yea the females are full, some not as much as
others. i've been jigging, sometimes 1/4oz.
mostly 3/8. in that wind you probably not feel
ing the bite. are you using med. or med.-lite
rod, .010 line or smaller? or try a stinger

I used an ultra light with 6 pound test. I forgot about putting a stinger hook on. good idea. I thought the fish would have spwaned by now.
