    Has anyone been having any luck at the alton dam? I have been out in the kaskaskia and also Carlyle. Have been getting some bites but nothing of any size. Wondering if the channels are on their beds now :confused2: Would like to try Alton dam tomorrow evening but don't want to go out there only to wet a line and bring nothing home.

    A few friends and I went out 2 weekends ago. One guy caught a 42 and a 6, another guy a 12, and a big 0 for myself. The guy that caught the 42 is the same guy that won a tournament the weekend before with five fish at a little over 200 pounds. A guy at work has been fishing over there a few times since said it has been slow.

    There is a good chance they might be on their beds out there, but I would still go out if i was you. Its always the night you dont expect to have much luck that you just might find what your looking for :big_smile:
