Has anyone had any luck fishing on the Illinois River in the winter when the ice is out?
Welcome to the BOC Tom. I've never fished the Ill. river but plenty of people on here have. Someone will answer you soon, I'm sure. Heck, if they don't, go out and try anyway. Anything beats cabin fever.
Tom Welcome to the Brotherhood. I look forward to reading your post.:0a25::0a22::0a22:
Thanks Mickey, I will probably try shad gut in some of the holes I usially fish and see what happens.
Tom welcome to the B.O.C. from N.C. ,as far as your question ,i have no idea what to tell you ,but what can it hurt to give it a try yourself ,on a nice day :wink:
It can happen buddy, just got to figure it out, this will be my first winter trying it out. Some guy in here posted pics of flatheads he caught from a lake in the winter, but I can't find the darn thing!:angry::embarassed:
this is my first winter as well but I have heard people say that blues especially will bite all year long. its just that when it gets cold out they go to and stay in the deepest hole they can find. not sure if that is correct but that is what I have been told
TONTO is in the process of designing & building an aluminum cover with windows for winter fishing on the mississippi. Says the blues group un & you just boat from each rock section till you find em stacked up then its on! Momma ain't going unless he gets that cover done. I'll let ya know, but he swears by winter catfishing.
As far as I can tell, their is no off season for catfishing. I have caught them in every month of the year.
