When I've managed to drag myself out of bed on the weekends, I've been heading to the Des Plaines with pike on my mind. For some reason, I can't avoid the brown fish without teeth. Their numbers are really starting to take off. The water is very low and clear, and weeds have been horrendous. Recently, they've been uprooting and floating downstream and it's limited my lure options. The pike I have triggered have been bumping my lures and not really committing to solid bites, or not much bigger than the lure I've been tossing.

The bassing has been pretty good when I can avoid fouling my lure.

I fully anticipate better days ahead with cooling temps. The weeds dissipating alone will help tremendously.

All good fish, Dog. Nice Job! I, too, have been chasing the toothy critters. Check out my post under Creeks & Streams.

Nice report as always jmdog. If we can get some rain and blow out the moss, we are in store for some awesome fall fishing on our area rivers.

Haven't seen much happening on that river lately but this the first decent report as of late. Good job. Were you fishing the northern part or southern part of the river?

Nice report, jmdog. What was in that bluegill's mind attacking that plug as big as itself.
