1. Took my son and his buddy fishing on Saturday. They caught fish, but I got the big one of the day. Caught this girl slow rolling a spinnerbait just over the weeds ...more in about ten feet of water.

  2. Heading out this weekend to Silver Springs State Park (Yorkville, IL) to do some fishing. Anyone have any feedback on this location from this year?


I live in the NW suburbs of Illinois. At age five my family moved to this area. While moving in our dog ran away. I went out looking for him ...more and found him by a pond. I would fish that pond almost every day for the next fifteen years. That is where I developed my love for fishing. I do not own a boat. I am a bank beater.

  • Species Largemouth Bass
  • Waterway Have rods and tackle backpack, will travel.
  • Lure Depends on the situation. I love fishing a moving bait, but I always seem to catch them on finesse baits.
