  1. I just wonder where it all comes from? 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. Somebody not doing something right.
  2. We can always use articles for our Bronzeback Bulletin Newsletter. If you would like to submit an article on fishing techniques, adventures or just about anything else preferably pertaining to smallmouth of course, please post your interest in submitting here and one of the ISA Officers will contact you. This is YOUR newsletter. Thanks!

    NWR Kish Float

    Sunday, September 15th—Kishwaukee River Float Outing. We will meet at the Cherry Valley Café at 9AM for breakfast and to work out shuttle details. We will be close to north, south and main branches of the Kishwaukee River with several options depending on how long of a float you want to do. The Fall is a great time to chase smallmouth as they can get very aggressive feeding when they start to prepare for winter. let us know if you plan to attend so we may plan accordingly.
  4. Scott, please add me for 8/8 - 8/11 also as Mr. Tim is my ride to that gorgeous area.

  6. You should float Cherry Valley to Kish forest preserve. CV to Kish FP is about a 2 1/2 hour float for the tubers. If you were to put in as you mention above, then subtract about 30 to 40 minutes from the 2 1/2 hours.
