Got out for a couple hours Saturday afternoon for some shore-fishing. The the river was raging at 5500 cfs. Fished the slack-water eddies no more than three feet from the shore using split-shot and minnow. Had several hits two conversions. First was a feisty smallie about 14 inches the other was an eye about the same. Both fish released. Weather was beautiful. Lost my pix resizing tool but if I can get it I throw some pics up later. Man it was good to get out and feel the tight line! Cant waite for the river to come down to wadable levels.

Good to hear. I haven't gotten any smallies out of South Elgin yet this year. I've been throwing spinner baits and a few cranks. Guess I need to slow it down. There have been a few muskies caught, well I should say hooked into.

To resize pics I just use MS Paint (if you have windows you have MS Paint)... open the pic and then go to Image--- Stretch/Skew and then strech it by 50% horizontal and vertical... then save the pic as a new file.

Nice job on the fish.... Im hoping to get out there near the McHenry dam sometime soon.
