Illinois fishing can be difficult at times. However, with the proper tools and presentations (based on the area you are fishing – the cover, the bottom color and composition, water clarity and local forage etc.) you can have some really successful days. Even if you are stuck fishing the bank like we were today – and yes… even if you are stuck fishing small city lakes… like we were today… and even if you are fishing pressured waters… like we were today… you can still have a great time.
DO WHAT YOU CAN WITH WHAT YOU GOT!
Now tie on a power presentation, a finesse presentation, start bankin’ and get to work!
Time to fish.
Let me know if you have any suggestions for improving, or a pond or creek to fish, or just want to say hey in the comments or on social media. I’m always trying to improve and appreciate your input. Thanks much!
Let’s get better.
