Good Crappie Fishing

Went out to my honey hole just to check the water temperature and to my surprise it was in the mid 50 and the crappies were hitting night crawlers in 5-8 ft

Chumming for Bluegills in March....

The weather has been spring like for the past two weeks in northern Illinois(Waukegan) and I was wondering if the water temp. is in the mid 40's would chumming bring the gills into 7-10 feet of water? I hoping so cause I'm going out this weekend to try my luck at my honeyhole.

Panfish are bitting....

...very good early morning and late evening. I caught over 80 panfish(bluegills,crappies.strippers) on night crawlers and cricket jig.I guess you can say they were in the pre-spawn mode. Catfish were a problem cause most of them I caught were small but put up a good fight...now I'm wondering if the panfish in the chain-no-lakes are bitting? I shall find out this weekend and post some pics if my luck is good,

turtlehead lake

nice clean place to visit...to fly a kite, walk or to enjoy its beauty; however,  fishing isn't that good from my stand point. The lake is too weedy and no boats are allowed. I fished for about two hours and only caught small gills who enjoyed a free meal. Bass and Crappies were not biting nor bullheads...overall the place sucks....
