Lower Illionis River

09-15-18: Larry Mark and I went to the Lowere Illionis river today looking for some Stirpers. We found some. We tried something different by not using any Shad. We cast arificials and trolled some. We caught a pretty nice Stripers. Our biggest Striper was about 12lbs. Most were 2 to 6lbs. Water temp. at the mouth of the river was 78 degs. As we moved up to the bridges it came down to 63degs. They were not running any water but they had been. See my Facebook page for pics.
