  1. Last week
  2. Frustration sometimes makes people do stupid things, not that I condoled.
  3. I was kayaking back in the no-motor zone and a guy with an aluminum boat with Wisconsin stickers fired up his small HP gas motor and had it pretty much full throttle. Front end of his boat was at a 30-40 degree angle as he traversed the cove. I was waiting for him to hit a submerged stump and go flying! The things you see when out on the water! Remember when comedian George Carlin said, "Think of how stupid the average person is, then realize that half of them are stupider than that!"
  4. John I would like to say yes, but sadly I will NOT be able to attend. Stay Well All!
  5. I’ve heard only great things about the conversations and stories that have taken place around your fire pit but unfortunately I will not be able to attend. Have a great event!!
  6. Now you can use a big motor, just operate it at no wake speeds. Will increase the pressure from bass boats for sure.
  7. everyone predicts much more boat traffic by bigger boats more guides will offer shabbona as a trip , possibly more organized tournaments as motor use kept them away . musky anglers have pushed for this 10 yrs ago
  8. I’ve every intention of making the drive up. Looking forward to it.
  9. Won't that mean less boat traffic and less boating pressure? Perhaps more kayaks?

  15. aug 6 thru 9th put me down................john kowalski (crappiejohn)
  16. Don't get discouraged, half the fun is searching for and finding the good spots. The Kank can be difficult (we've all been skunked there) and Smallmouth can be finicky but once you find them it is very rewarding, especially the hard charging Kankakee smallmouth.
  17. Again this week. Indiana Dunes Beaches Closed Again Due to Unidentified ‘Sheen’ on Water Leaking From US Steel | Chicago News | WTTW
  18. I had high hopes for catching some Smallies on Kankakee River, from the shore, but I fished for 4 hours straight on a week day in the first part of June in 2019 and caught zero fish. I guess I have a lot to learn about fishing a river. The Kankakee River kicked my butt. I don't normally fish rivers. I fish small creeks and ponds from the shore. I don't know if I will ever go back to the Kankakee River State Park to fish. It is a beautiful park, but I did not have fun fishing. Also note I tried to fish the river in the same spot at same time of year in 2018 and also caught zero after 6 hours of solid fishing. Skunked two years straight. Very hard to take.
  19. Cool. Thanks. Gotta be a van.
  20. Sorta off topic, have you ever seen these? SylvanSport GO camping trailer • ultralight pop-up camper towable by cars Check it out they are cool.
  21. Kar Korner in Loves Park has a bunch of used cargo vans in stocks. They have 2 seaters with a big open back and you can stand up without hitting your head in some of them.
