    Anyone having any luck with anything besides our whiskered friends? I saw some guys trolling on the Ohio river last week for sauger/walleye so it must be getting close for them and the white bass family. Anything else bending the rods these days? stripers, smallies, walleye, bluegill....? I know alot of us target catfish but break off to fish for other species when they are on.

    i will have to look into these other non-whiskered fellas...jk...the stripers, walleye, and sauger are biting good on the illinois river, mostly small ones though.

    I have access to a good size pond that's 20' deep and I catch lots of bluegill in there. They average between 8" and 10" long, I like bream fishing when they're that big. Have also caught several bass around 12" to 15" out of there, also got one just over 5 pounds this spring. There's channel cats in there, but there's so many dang turtles you can't get to them.:angry:

    catch the turtles and make some soup or deep fry them. the eat real good, and you will have your pond back. those dang things can ruin a small pond...

    The white bass seem to be back on around the tanners creek area in the last week or so. I caught 5 in about 5 minutes on saturday.
