This Afternoon Shane, Neil, James and I ended up Going to Busse's WWD and Fishing The Crystal Clear Waters of the WWD and Salt Creek for Large Mouth Bass,Crappie, Carp, And Blue Gill. Before Heading over to the WWD We decided to hit behind the football feild looking for carp. Wearing my Polorised Sunglasses I spotted a Really nice Walleye about 19 " But quickly swam off. So we All Got low to the snow and Then Spotted a School of Common Carp (Explaines in Video 1). After wards we quickly walked over to the WWD Where #1Cubsfan and Basscaster were fishing on the Rails, Unfortunanlty I didn't find that out until I read there report. I wasn't expecting the Water to be so Clear or Shallow No body ever mentioned that so It completely caught me off guard. There We ended up fishing for Large Mouth. I have two Videos explaing most of the Outing, I apologise the report is Short And theres no detail in weather conditions (didn't bring any of the equipment.) But will do for sure next time.

Here's a Video of me Explaning Part I of the Report. (Trying to provide video in most reports, This covers up the video I didn't take while out on the water.)
