Well since the Mississippi River is still at flood stage and gas is at $4 a gallon I have been fishing the Rock River. The Catfish are biting well, I caught quite a few the other day fishing current breaks. I caught a couple decent Bass too so I went Bass fishing today and caught about 20. Mostly Smallmouth but a couple Largemouth. An 1/8 ounce jig and twister worked best but I also caught fish on a crankbait. Fishing the Rock is a lot of work, I have to move a lot and there is a lot of current. So I fish an area and slowy work my way down river by pulling on the anchor. Sometimes I have to start the motor and so all that is a lot of work. The good thing is not many people are out and the fish are biting about everywhere. I saw people catching fish from the shore at the park.
I finally have the camera figure out for getting fish jumping, but that 50d with the 55-70mm lens is so heavy it’s hard to hold with one hand.
