    I'm heading to Utica and Starved Rock this weekend. Anyone in the area like to give me some pointers? I'll be fishing from the shore and could use some guidance on location and bait.

    If your willing to walk buddy there are plenty of spots up and down the river. When I boat up there, there are always people as much as a mile down river from the lodge. Just catch some shad and you should do okay, if you can't there is the bait shop in Utica that has some I think. Good luck to ya hoss.

    Didn't do too well at Starved Rock. Fished off the wall and didn't get a bite. Had to leave early due to a death in the family. Cut our weekend short. Heading to Wisconsin this weekend.
