    Mill looks real good Steve. Went by on the bridge today. A few boats were on the water. Wish I was!

    Drove over the lake today on my way back from church. One boat was on the water. Looked real good. Let me know how you do when you go.

    I probably will not be able to get there until after the IL Mini Rally @ Springfield. I need to fish Springfield as I have never fished there

    Yeah we are not going to make it up there for awhile either. We are fishing East Fork pretty heavy right now getting ready for the Miller Lite.

    I went to Mill Creek yesterday(Memorial Day). Fished in the morning, it was not as busy as I thought it would be, until about noon. Water temps were in low to mid 70s. Didn't catch a lot probably 8 or so all little 14-16 inch. My first time there, really nice lake.

    Re: (oteymc)

    It is a gorgeous area for sure (for IL anyways). There are some great fish in that lake. You will normally catch quite a few smaller fish (1.5's to 2.5s) but when you hook up with a big one it is an added bonus. Love that lake

    Went to Mill Creek again on Saturday the 9th. Got there early right at daylight. Water temp 83-4. Tried a couple points, no luck. Then, by chance the bass started chasing shad out in deep water (35 ft) in the mouth of a cove, beside the point I was fishing. I don't mean one or two fish jumping - I mean 15 - 20 bass jumping, chasing shad, sometimes 3 or 4 herds feeding on the top at the same time. So, me and a family in a pontoon spent an hour and a half chasing them around. When I saw a boil of fish, I would just throw a buzz bait or swimbait in there and catch one. Probably caught 20 fish, had another ten come off. Nothing big, but lots of fun. When it got hot, about 8 am - it just quit.

    Fished 11-25-13 water pretty clear level down probably a foot or so water temp was 44 at ramp at 9:30am got up to 48 down by the dam. used a silver buddy and a 1/4 hairjig fished about 3 hr caught 7 bass one crappie biggest bass 16" crappie about 11 " 3-5 mph wind out of north north west. The thrill of the day was sticking something in 28' of water on a 1/4 oz hairjig with spinning tackle 8lb fluorocarbon. Had it on for a couple minutes had a great head shake but only started up once then dove running drag and came unbuttoned probably a cat or carp but fun either way. Caught a 29.5# flathead on a slow rolled spinnerbait about a month ago on Paris east lake she wore my arse out..LOL
