I spent the a.m. with R.T. on the Illinois
I think he could have done well without me except for the "NET" part. We got on the Sauger big time and were headed for home by noon.
R.T. was the real "Stick" today. 3 ways with floating jig & minnows was the bait of choice. I'd call it GREAT. :allah

I finally got it to go.Image

Very nice, what size weight does it typically take to get that 3 way down against the current?

We use from 1 to 2 ounce weights depending on current.WSJ my 6 fish will keep us being good Catholics for the next 2 fridays so whatever I catch in the meantime will go back.

I tried to load the photo of only the fish. It's the same Pixel Value as the first. The program won't pick it up.

How was the water was thinking of fishing starved rock this week from shore. Did you see a lot of people out? Also curious were these fish deep or close to shore. Thank you

The only spot for sauger that is fishable from shore is off the seawall right below starved rock,but I don't know when that starts.Right now the fish are in the main channels of the river.There were places to fish off Dee Bennet road but because of the extensive littering it is all closed to shore fishing now.That was the picture I wanted posted Johnny,I'm glad that nice sauger color pattern showed real good.

We went again today till the wind chased us off around 11:30.Fishing was not as good as sunday but we still got around 20 between us.They are dredging the channel along plum island and I think that threw the bite off some.It was too windy to drive down river so we stayed around the park.
