Connect Outdoors Fishing Report 

First off I would like to thank Connect Outdoors for having these tournaments.  The weather in IL was really hot throughout the week.  Made fishing a little tough.  Dusk was when the fish seemed to be really active on topwater.   Lures I threw were Kvd strike king yellow crankbait. 6th sense crush 50x. Also a buzzbait, which was what my biggest was caught on, and a white frog.” - Kyle Porter
