    Fishing

    by wendahe Updated May 30, 2006

    A few great spots for bass fishing:
    Devil's Kitchen Lake -- A lot of bass around the rocky bank near the dam. The best time to catch the big ones are around dusk. Jig head lure with colorful(preferably yellow) fur works excellent.

    Little Grassy Lake -- Like the name suggested, there are lots of underwater grass surrounding the lake. Worm lure is the best for getting the feeding fish.

    Cedar Lake is best for Crappie fishing. Green jig head lure with red/black plastic tail works like a charm.

  • Wineries Galore!

    If you come to visit Southern Illinois, you must give our local wineries a try. The wine industry in our area is growing fast, both in size and notariety. We have some wonderful wineries. I particularly recommend Von Jakob (off Route 147 South) and Blue Sky Vineyards (south of Carbondale off Giant City Road). Most of the wineries are within 15 minutes of Carbondale, and aren't too expensive.
