Fished Monday and Tuesday. Monday was better fishing Tuesday was a warmer windy day. Keeper Sauger and short walleye were available in the 29' hole beneath the dam on the IL side. Tried the slough nothing and Credit Island nothing. Handling didn't work for us three ways 5/8 jig with plain hook above was the ticket. Water temp 35 downstream from the Rock 36 to 38 near the dam. Watched some commercial guys load up with sturgeon below the Rock, most of them appeared to be 2 footers with an walleye mixed in here and there.
