1. Hit a local forest preserve in northern Illinois for some crappies. Had some pretty good action despite the 40mph wind gusts. Check out the video in the link! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=C0TqJRYw39g

  2. Was able to do some bass fishing last week in northern Illinois when it was in the 50s. Check out the video! And check out the other videos on my channel. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=35cy4p3fuCc

      It sure has!! It's making it hard to get back out there and do some fishing. It's frustrating!

      Thanks!! I saw the technique on a few other videos and decided to give it a try and I'm happy I did.

      Great video! I like the dropshot technique from the bank, you don't hear that too often, but it obviously works!
