4/20 Report

Got out for about an hour and hit two different spots. Water level is finally on its way down and clarity is improving. Caught 6 fish this outing. One 14" smallie, four dink smallies and one dink largemouth. Caught on a #3 mepps and floating rapala. The big smallie slammed it in the middle of the river, all the smaller guys were chasers biting 5-7' from shore. Enjoy!

Nice report. Gotta love the Mepps bite. A timeless classic. Pretty nice smallie

That's a nice smallie! The Mepps bite is good right now for sure.

Did better than me.. hit the Naperville area south of downtown Riverwalk and just had one small dink smallie.. pioneer park and Meigs I think was the other park I tried.. water was moving fast still and the area I was in wasn't looking too deep.. caught the one on mister twister on a jig
