M D Borah Lake near Olney, Illinois
You will find decent bass, ok panfish, and decent catfish in this average IL Lake. In the spring it's not a bad idea to fish the small shallow bays, fallen trees, and the shallow water at the end of the lake. The rest of the year it's a good idea to try fishing weed lines, drop offs, and fallen tree. I would think about using jigs, live bait, and white spinner baits. Good luck fishing!
