Building a Private Dream Fishing Lake

Mike O’Reilly built a series of lakes outside of Peoria, Illinois and invested a lot of money in making a dream fishery. He created underwater road beds, sunken timber, aquatic vegetation, rip rap, brush and more to which the bass can relate. The fishery is amazing. In this two part video series, we look at what went into making the lakes and then we spend a day fishing the lakes in the middle of summer.
