I'm a newbie fishing in IL around West Chicago and Winfield areas. I had some free time this morning and contrary to the weather and fishing calendar I decided just to go out and get some fresh air. I was too lazy to setup a rig so just attached my BassPro sinking crankbait to the swivel snap (again, contrary to all recommendations) and landed 4 smallies (10"-12") in about 2 hours before my line and reel (and myself) started freezing. I don't know any fishing spots but was looking for depth, rocks and river bends. The river is very shallow by my location. I've been reading some posts here and it seems that folks hit the river way south from me, at the West/East confluence south of Naperville. I'll have to try it out when Spring comes in few weeks......got a few pics but need permission from admin to post. Cheers and thanks for all the good info posted here! :thanks
