Caught dozens and dozens of smallies and they all ranged between 16-17". I can't wait to hit the jackpot and catch a few that are 20" this spring. Plus, my chances of hooking a Tiger are getting better and better. I'm completely ready for that monster.
yeah i agree took me 2 trips to figure watson out but it does have nice smallies and perch and saugeye

it sucks so bad that when I fished with you there, I got 2 hookups from keeper walleye and 2 bloated rainbows. the smallmouth fishing is horrible there too. it's a terrible fishery, indeed. I best stick to sloans lake.

Oh contrary jig and pig breath...it's fairer and more beautiful sister reservoir just up the road that boasted 3 state records in two different species last year...but dont go there...I think it is going to winter kill again this year...
I was talking about places more or less up north of the metro area.

Aurora sucks. they should raise the price another 10 bucks. you should rename yourself marky mark and the funky reservoir in honor of that place.
