Hit the river this afternoon armed with some Extra large fatheads and a plan. The water was up and flowing pretty good and the clarity was unbelivable for the fox. I started hitting a small hole with an eddy and worked my way down to a logjam where I picked up one dink on a husky jerk. I headed to the opposite side of the river and stared working a nice eddy. I worked the current breaks on both sides of the eddy and the smallies were stacked up pretty good. I had 3 fish in as many casts and it didn't take long to add a few more to that. I ended up pretty well for the night and just had a blast with those beefy bronzebacks.
All these fish came on a #6 octopus hook with three split shot about 10" above and an extra large fathead minnow.

Cory,

Wished I could have joined you! Took the Saturday off
work to run errands.

How about next Saturday, Rooster? We can do our own
package for agreed cost. My lawyer will join us.
He is a great guy to have around and funny to be with.

Nice Job Cory. I Love to wade the fox. Expecially for the fall smallie bite. In my opinion thats as good as it gets. Even when your not on em. Although catching makes it a wee bit better. With any luck I be out there this weekend in the South Batavia or North Aurora area. TTFN
