This Saturday I went out to Blackwell Forest Preserve with my Uncle who brought his 17 foot bass boat up from southern Illinois to come fishing with me. We decided to try Blackwell because I could not think of many other places to put a boat in.
The wind was blowing extremely hard that day, somewhere up to 35 mph gusts. We worked up and down the wind blown shorelines casting rattletraps (all different colors) and had a great time! We caught about 15 total most over 2 lbs. The biggest was 5 1/2 and its the big one you see in the picture.
Awesome day of fishing and textbook spring patterns, the windblown sides can stack up all the baitfish and the bass feed heavily during prespawn. This is why spring is my favorite time to fish!
