Fishing a Private Dream Lake in Illinois

Terry and Jason got the opportunity to visit a private lake to bass fish on a cool summer morning. The tried frogs, buzzbaits, swimbaits, jigs, plastics, crankbaits, and more and caught a lot of small bass. But they made a change with a weather change and really caught them after that. Proof that a healthy privately managed fishery can flourish in the midwest.
