Lu­cas Wise shared some Chicago River knowl­edge after an­other good day Sun­day.

“Be­fore and after work, I throw a cou­ple of casts around there and have been ty­ing into some de­cent large­mouth bass,” emailed Wise, who works at the Po­lice Ma­rine Unit at the Ma­rine Safety Sta­tion near DuSable Har­bor. “I have the best luck with the Zoom Trick Worm (in Junebug, black or green pump­kin), rigged weight­less on 6-pound fluoro­car­bon. Bluegill-pat­tern 1/4-ounce swim jigs with 3.8 Keit­ech trail­ers have been work­ing well, too, on 12-pound fluoro­car­bon.

“I’ve had luck on the main branch near the Mer­chan­dise Mart on my kayak with the same rigs.”
