1. Was fishing for Crappie with a small jig & minnow, but this guy came along. Quite a surprise. Great fight. Released unharmed to fight another day. 🙂

  2. Say what?!?! I was jigging a Little Cleo Spoon and all of a sudden it felt different. Thought I had a weed. Reeled it in and Nope! So...a snag, or did it hit my ...more lure?

  3. I caught approximately 30 Yellow Perch and kept 12 to eat. That happened 2 days in a row. Awesome fishing! I was using a small tubed crappie jig tipped with a small ...more minnow. I was TRYING to catch Crappies, but the Perch we're hungry, so I fed them. What's a guy to do?

      Aurtur James.... I was in a boat fishing towards the shoreline just as the weeds dropped off in about 3-4 ft of water. It would have been just as easy to fish it ...more from shore.

  4. Caught a total of 8 White Bass vertical jigging a Little Cleo Spoon blue & chrome. They were near the bottom in 26 to 29 feet of water. They all hit as the spoon ...more flickered down. Fun stuff!

Old disabled guy who loves to fish. I have a boat and mainly fish the Rock River near Roscoe IL and Pierce Lake at Rock Cut State Park near Rockford ...more IL. I'll fish for Crappie, Bluegill, White Bass, Perch, Walleye, Northern Pike, Large & Smallmouth Bass. And I will often catch a Channel Cat or two on occasion. Whatever Mother Nature provides is ok with me! 🙂
