Lake Jacksonville near Jacksonville, Illinois
You will find lots of nice bass, average catfish, mysterious striped bass, and good crappies, in 476 acre Jacksonville Lake. Early in the fishing season try fishing in the shallow bays and coves that are so numerous. If you can find one with weeds, fallen trees or boat docks, and a feeder creek you have a hot spot. The rest of the fishing season try fishing fallen trees, weed lines, and drop offs. Crank baits, spinners, and soft plastics are all good bets for fish. Good luck fishing!
