Top 5 Update

Mon, April 17, 2017

Short and sweet this week, let the pics and details do the talking.

Mark Bass

Weight: 3-14
Angler: Mark Balbinot
Date: April 10
Location: Double T State Fish & Wildlife Area–Canton, IL
Lure: Storm Arashi Squarebill 3 Crankbait (chartreuse with black back)
Structure: Small point from the bank
Angler Comments: Went out after the area got pelted with golf ball size hail and heavy rains.  I was about to give up and made a few more cast with a crankbait on a point and then finally I felt some weight and set the hook. The fish hit about 4 feet from the bank and inhaled that crankbait.
Top 5 Weight: 18-14 (5-2,4-2,3-14,3-0,2-12) culls 2-11

Randy Bass

Randy Bass

Weight: 6-0
Angler: Randy Sampson Sr.
Date: April 15
Location: West Central IL public water
Lure: Squarebill crankbait (sexy shad)

Thanks, guys, appreciate the input and your effort in getting in some fishing during what was a wild and windy week in your locales.  Two solid limits (our top two for the year this far), look forward to your next reports.  Good luck to anyone who gets out in the upcoming week and send ‘em this way if you catch ‘em.  Talk to you later.  Troy
