    I've hit the Sangamon last two Weekends at Riverside Park (daytime)..
    I got 1 4lb Flathead and a buttload of carp on Nitecrawlers..
    Had 1 hit on Punch Bait, but it ran me straight into a snag and I never seen it.. Few drum on crawlers as well... I chopped one of the drum up and tried it as cut bait, but not even a nibble on it (would have tried cut carp, but they were BIG and I didnt want to waste em).. I talked to another guy fishing there and he said he caught a few channels on Shad Gut ..


    BTW, you the same John Gaston that lived in Deavoux Hieghts and raced BMX??
