Went out a few hours tonight and caught 2 little bull heads , my bait was aost bigger then them . The bite is dead around here bad . Really has not been that great all summer . A few times they was turned on and I could'nt keep 2 poles in the water . Most of the time it was slow or dead . If I didnt know better I would swear someone come stole all the catfish out of every lake around me . I sure hope some of you other Illinois catfisherman are catching a mess of them . Guess I got trout season next month lol .
