    Anyone got any advice for Clinton Lake (actually on the lake, not the spillway). We just bought a boat and are exploring a whole new world which is very much different from the bank fishing we've been doing for the past number of years! Any advice would be great!

    About 2 1/2 hours...I live 10 minutes off of I-57. Message me if you need directions. I don't fish it anymore (I don't like the speedboaters)

    looking for good places to fish tired of the kankakee river. I have a 17 1/2 foot astroglass fish and ski well minus the ski (only use it to fish) and there too many speed boats on the boatable side of the river. Help a brother out if you have any ideas close to home.

    I usually fish the North Fork area. It is very quiet there, as it is now fenced off from the main lake. I am going to try drifting the large flats this weekend.
