    I fish Baldwin Lake in IL during the winter. Hit the warm water discharge on the northeast side of the lake with live or cut fish.

    Bruce there is a lot of fisherman across the mississippi river who love to fish and are willing to give you the info you request.

    Ref: Bldwin Lake, Lake of Egypt, Clinton Lake, and etc.

    Where in Mo. do you live or how far are you willing to drive?

    I try to frequent Powerton in Pekin IL as much as possible from Feb-Apr. cut or live bait works the best in the discharge.
