Went up to IL last night, got up there around 7ish and fished till 1:00pm today. I fished between Artist Island and the Spillway. I caught 24 cats. All on liver,shrimp and crawlers. Most were tightlined on the bottom. I caught my personal best too. I caught a 26" channel cat and a 24" flathead which was a surprise to me. The flathead hit a minnow/jig combo about 3 ft off the bank. I got a few pics of it on my moms cell phone. I managed a few crappie all between 9-11". Caught one carp. Couldnt find any gills and didnt try for eyes. On the topic of gills while checking out the moundwood area, I found a dead gill in the water, I netted it and measured it at 11 3/4 inches. WOW! The wind was blowing constantly, so the lake was rought. 1-2ft waves w/whitecaps. Water was around normal level but highly stained and warm.
