I tried it a while back, but picked up the wrong species of worm by mistake. Something to revisit!

Hey Joe! ( sorry for the cliche but I love that song) If you have the space and interest consider a worm farm. I've got about 15,000 red wrigglers living in a bin. Not a fisherman myself but have been told those worms are ideal for fresh water fishing. They are also great for gardeners. Your plantings will thrive with an application of worm casings. A very natural fertilizer.

I wouldn't mind a decent bait shop in Oak Park. The DPR is right in our back yard and now that the Hoffman dam in lyons is down, I'd imagine that the fishery will start to come back to life. Catch and release only from the DPR though... who knows how much contamination is in that river.
