Knee is shot so I haven't been able to walk the rivers much near me in Naperville. I am hoping to get out in the kayak and fish for some nice size red ear, bluegill, hybrid. All I have seen around the Chicago area are stunted bluegill. I would greatly appreciate some guidance on some relatively small lakes within an hour or two from me. Small enough that I can cover a good portion of the lake. I would guess that would be most lakes with 9.9 limits or trolling motor only lakes. Also wouldn't mind finding a few lakes with big crappie to catch from the yak. I don't expect anyone to give me their best lakes, but somewhere I can catch some size. I am guessing redear are the biggest but I may be wrong there. Thanks to any help.
