Find Walleye & Fun In South Elgin
DuPage Angler Pondboy With A S. Elgin Walleye
The rain slows down and we pull up to the dam. Funny thing about time, it changes things. Like landmarks you used to pin point your spots. But a huge building! Gone! Are you kidding me? The second window to the left was right where my walleye hole started.
The river is up not too bad to fish but up enough to give the walleyes plenty of room to hide from us. We fished Lindy rigs and live bait for about an hour with out a fish. The newer Lindy weights do snag less but lose one at 3 bucks each! Ouch. We tie on drift rigs. NOW GUYS this is not a huge round red and white bobber, a giant slit shot, and a glob of worms. Its premium balsa floats, good hooks, and some tricks from steelhead fisherman like the use of shot patterns. (more on this in future posts) As we start to move toward the bridge…wham a nice heavy fish about 50 yards away from the hole in about 2.5 feet of water, a nice walleye!
