  4. Decent day on Baldwin Lake. Most of the Blues were right around 1lb but we did catch 3 that were 3 to 3.5lbs. Total count was 17 Blues and 6 Channel Cats after ...more 5 hours on the Water. Weather conditions were variable with a Storm finally coming in around 4pm.

      You can see 2 small Channels in this photo but the majority are Blues.


I am originally from Mo but have been living in Il for 6 years. I am a Catfish man at heart but love to fish regardless.
