A few separate trips to the new 90 acre listing in Fulton illustrated that this lake is nothing short of outstanding. Kelly Presley and his son Tyler had a great day, netting dozens of bass and some walleye! Earlier in the week, Aaron Literski landed multiple bass over 4 lbs…including one over 6 lbs. They also caught some great smallmouths, walleyes, and a musky!. Check out the pics! We also experimented with the GoPros on the lake. They worked great but we definitely need the battery extenders. They died before the fishing got good. This fishing property for sale is a one of a kind!
Flip through the pics above (using the arrows or by clicking on the pictures) to see how amazing the fishing was. These were all caught Tuesday, April 3. I lost one of the sd chips which showed several more 3 pound plus fish. Quite simply, the day was amazing. Chef Todd of the Illinois Land Company ProStaff and his boating partner boated several 5 pounders, one 6.2 pounder, and one 7.4 pound bass! All in one afternoon! Amazing. They also took a break from the bass fishing to try their hand at Crappie Fishing. They boated nearly 40 keepers before they switched back to trophy bass fishing.
I fished with Kelly Presley of Presley Outdoors. We caught dozens of fish including several in the three pound range. Our highlight was when Kelly snagged two big catfish within about five casts of each other.
I will add the new pics as soon as I find the other camera.
