Fishing Trip to the 100 Acres for Sale in Knox County

This lake is on a 100 acre parcel just outside of Oak Run in Knox County, Illinois. The lake was built four or five years ago and stocked with forage fish the first year and sporting fish the second year. It was stocked with fingerling fish only be Illinois DNR agent Ken Russell. Chef Todd and I took a trip out there to monitor the progress. We caught a great mix of Bass, Bluegill, and Crappie. The bass were all in the 10-14″ range…which is right on track. Moreso, they were super fat! Check out the bellies on these largemouth. We caught a dozen or so crappie in about ten minutes. They were in the 8-12″ range and were very aggressive. Bottom line is that this place is progressing perfectly. It is going to be a mega trophy fishery in a few years.

The structure on the lake is awesome too. The south side is all flooded timber. It has a fully rip rapped dam. It also has a giant flat with 4′ depths at the west end of the lake. It also has a full creek channel running right though the middle of it.
