Illinois hunting and fishing

Sauger were biting on Sunday

November 18, 2009 at 05:15 PM

The Illinois Walleye Trail started its 2010 season on Sunday November 15, at Hennepin Illinois. The river had come down to 16 feet at LaSalle and water clarity was 1-1 1/2 feet. Catching fish was not the problem but getting keeper fish above the 14 inch size was. Teams said all day that they were catching 40-50 fish a day. It looks like the Illinois River is going to have about three different class of Saugers over the next three years to continue the great fishing. Most teams were either jigging with minnows or pulling three ways with live bait or cranks. Water temp remains around 52 degrees.

Steve Sandor of Ottawa, Illinois and Jeremy Piacenti of Tiskilwa finished first postion with a six fish limit weighing 12.51 pounds earning them $2,200.00. Steve and Jeremy were fishing below Hennepin. Placing second from Sparland was Rick Parrott and Mike Tatera form St. Charles with a six fish limit weighing 12.23 pounds earning them $1,250.00. Placing third were brothers Greg and Jerry Gott from LaMolle, Il. with a six fish limit of 9.68 pounds cashing $875.00. Big fish honors went to the team of Steve Jones and Nick Mancos a 3.59 Sauger worth $420.00.

As part of the GrassRoots fishing Challenge from Lund Boats and compliments of Hennepin Marine the highest placing team in a Lund Boat wins $500.00. This tournament the winners were Guy Lopez and Paul Dimock from Chicago. The second Lund Boat out of the money compliments of Hennepin Marine earns a $100.00 gift certificate and this tournament were Tom Jr. and Tom Sr. Giachetto of Ladd Illinois.

Compliments of WoodStock Fishing Line Company the team of John Smith and Jason Wrosch each won a 200 yard spool of 15 pound Lead core line with second largest fish.

The Illinois Walleye Trail is a participating Tournament Trail for the Cabelas National Team Championship and the (AIM) Anglers Insight Marketing.
