  4. I'm preparing for the fall action even though its mid-late summer. Bass will be chasing the baitfish, and the crappie will wake up again. Become very active. ...more Fish will begin fattening up for the winter. Match the hatch and keep those lines tight my friends

      WoW thats awesome! I haven't been able to fish tourneys for a while due to other obligations but I have caught some nice smallmouths when the water was high. ...more Been catching a ton of bluegills also.I'm going to follow you on the circuit. Keep up the good work

      Not to bad! Im doing the Wis. BFLs as a coangler and im 19th overall in the points. I had a 12th place finish the last one. I also placed 5th for the Illinois ...more Highschool State Championship and already prequalified for next year. So its been a good year with hopefully more good tournaments ahead! What about you?

  6. Many people shun high water in the river but if you can find some rocky areas during high water you'll catch some big smallmouth like i did. I used a craw pattern ...more rattle trap

      Hey John it's been two years now. Where are we at on dredging the river? I hear that Indiana wants to release the quarries over there and pump more sand over ...more here
    2. Bobby Tucker 0
      When is the next meeting and I'll let you know if I can make it. I know they been talking about dredging the river for some time.
    3. john fetherling 0
      Bobby the dredging project is a pilot project, we are trying to open the Ramp back up in Aroma Park it has been closed for years due to the sand infiltration. If ...more you are interested in the project and would like to attend a meeting let me know and I will give you the date of our next meeting.

      Hey Fishidy, You need to give us the option to edit our posts like Facebook Because we make mistakes and need to correct them not just delete them and start all ...more over.

      We were going to start the dredging project this fall but we are waiting for the permits that should be in our hand soon.

      Where did my comment go. Oh well her it comes again, I am on the Environmental and agricultural committe running the River Pilot Project at the Aroma Park boat ...more launch. So I've been studying the sand issue for years now. and know most everything about it.
    7. john fetherling 0
      I know all about that I'm on the Environmental and agricultural committee running the pilot project by the Aroma Park boat launch area..
    8. Bobby Tucker 0

      The river is choice right now, except by the convergence area by Aroma Park there is river slime all over that area coming from the Kankakee River.

      The structure's all that matters Bobby!
    11. Bobby Tucker 0
      About a month ago we got a ton of rain on the Kankakee. I decided to fish in a few different spots where I knew smallies could be. Bingo. they were there. Smallies ...more don't care about high water in a small river system as long as there are some big rocks to hide behind. Thats how i caught them
    12. Cody Rubner 0
      The higher up on the bank the fish are, the more at comfortable I am. Never against some high water on any river system!
    13. Jon Giacalone 0
      Couldn't agree with you more. Especially if you're fishing from the bank, high water tends to push fish shallower (out of the main current) and it makes ...more them more accessible.
