I took advantage of the nice weather yesterday afternoon and walked all of the Arrowhead shoreline. The water is high and stained. The flagstone points are just under the water. I kicked myself for forgetting my cranks at home and settled for throwing chatterbaits. No takers, but it was nice to get out. Lots of turtles were sunning on a tree on the west end. A young eagle flew over and circled. The geese didn't like that one bit.

I didn't spend much time at Turtlehead, since it was close to supper time. Threw a jerkbait over the drop on the north shore, but no takers there either.

I've never seen the forest preserves as crowded as yesterday! The parking lot was nearly full and the bike paths were a non-stop parade.

I was at turtlehead today Jim and the water is gin clear.Just fishing gills which were way out in the secondary weed line but easy to reach with the rocket bobber.Got over 30 or more gills and crappie but only a couple keeper size still fun to reel something in.I don't think the bass were feeding because in past years they would chase my hooked gills to shore and break them off occasionally.I was one of four fishing spread around the lake and a few dog walkers.

Thanks RT. I really need to get out for some panfish. I've just been stubborn about the big green fish.
