Braidwood Power Plant Cooling Pond (IL)

Travis Oesterle Fishing reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Hard Body Swimbaits technique and Shimano Curado DC Casting Reel on Braidwood Power Plant Cooling Pond. Additional comments from this report: "Battle the immense amounts of fishing pressure by standing out. Searching out the prime water temps where the large females are still feeding and not ready to commit to their spawning areas can be more than rewarding on the big glides. Many fish can also be caught on jerkbaits in the same areas."

CJ Xiong

Jetzers Lake (WI)

CJ Xiong reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Hard Body Swimbaits technique and Daiwa Tatula 200 Casting Reel on Jetzers Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Quick 1 hour outing fishing from the bank and pier. Very warm, but extremely windy. Threw my baits near the dock and reeds. Had many chase my large glide bait with 1 bite. Caught several on a megabass z2 crankbait. Most productive was throwing a smaller profile jig along the reeds. Used 14lb Shimano Mastiff FC. I've had several trips out with this line and I'm beginning to enjoy it. Very manageable and strong. Overall good line, I may make the switch from Sunline to Shimano Mastiff."

Brayden Klinksick

Stockton Lake

Brayden Klinksick reported catching Largemouth Bass using the Hard Body Swimbaits technique and Daiwa Tatula 300 Casting Reel on Stockton Lake. Additional comments from this report: "This spring from the point the water hit 47 degrees I have been catching tons of fish on the glide and losing my definite PB smallie. There are key areas throughout the lake where they have been eating the glide better than others. The best spots to throw the glide have been steep rocky banks, shallower bluffs, and long tapering points. The north side of the lake is extremely clear meaning the drawing power of the glide is very high. You may not catch every fish on the glide, but with the proper follow-up bait, you can convert a lot of followers into catches. (6in green pumpkin stickbait) Don't be afraid of the glide, and you'll likely break your PB."
