    AND GOING STIR CRAZY....

    Today while out exploring the area around Ravenswood neighborhood in Chicago I found a small baitshop with a for sale sign on the door. Should have been my first clue, but the owner was disrespectful and as I tried to ask questions he continuously tried to make me look stupid. Not a good first fishing story...


    I did manage to get him to tell me about a place where I can access the river at kedsie and foster? river park or something like that... ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS??

    Anyone looking for a fishing partner?

    ANY ADVICE?

    Praying the BOC can help me!!!

    Welcome to the BOC. It sounds like he dosnt want to sell his shop too much and I think I can understand why he wants to sell if his atitude is always that way

    Thats just a couple of blocks west of Swedish Covenant Hospital.I dont know the exact area where you can fish,but that river looks dirty and i wouldnt wanna eat anything i catch from there.One of these weekends i we can meet at the Fox River if your up to it in St.Charles.I shore fish so i only know of a couple of decent spots.It`s about 1hr to 1hr15min from your location.
