Woke up early this morning and decided that since I was up I would just get out of bed and make a run to the river.
After grabbing some fatheads I was on my way.
I started in a small eddie behind the bridge piling and nailed 4 bass in about 6 casts. They averaged 12 to 13" and put up a good fight. I started to work the outside edge of a large current break and wham I had on a good fighter. After a few jumps and some drag peeling I landed this nice smallie.


I fished a few items of structure to find some nice chunky and spunky channel cats waiting for an easy meal. I ended the day at about 9:15 and had 5 smallies and 2 nice channel cats. Not bad for a quick morning trip!
All fish were taken on a fathead minnow on a #6 hook with two 3/0 slit shots about 15" above the minnow.

Nice going Cory.

I hit S. Elgin Sunday and had to work to get fish. Was only throwing cranks. Maybe 6 fish, all small.
