I fished Songbird slough in Itasca during my lunch break. No fish to speak of. I was using an ultralight with a green and yellow bergie worm. The carp are in full spawn and are breaking the surface frequently.
After work I stopped by Turner pond in Roselle. In 1 hour managed to land 1 bluegill, 5 small largemouth and one nice crappie. All four to five feet from shore on the north side. I fished slow and steady wathing for the line to go straight. The wind put a good curve in the line and when it goes straight you give a tug. Frequently, the fish bite light, and you need to watch for the line to go straight.

I doubt the carp are spawning as they need water temps around 65 degrees to do their thing. Probably just goofing off as they put on the feed bag once water temps go above 50. I've only ice fished Songbird and it has a good amount of gills, with some crappie, although I never caught one bigger than 9 inches.
