Only thing I could think of would be an old copy of Bassmaster that covered the 2000 Classic.  I'm sure a few of the boats fished it.

One thing I can tell you is be prepared to deal with alot of ignorant boaters with large boats going to the lake if the weather is nice. Also watch the No Wake zones because 2 years ago they were really watching them once you go through the locks.

BE CAREFUL!!! There is alot of junk that will float in the river. I know many people that have been running the river and have messed up props and lower units. You find floating trees and rail road ties.

As far as looking for an old Bassmaster most info would either be on Lake Michigan or Lake Calumet.

With all that said there are some nice fish in the river if you can find then. I wouldn't have high hopes of going out trying to find alot of 14" fish but you can definitely find alot of fish in the 12" range. If you lock though the water clears up pretty quickly.

Check you PM.

Thanks for the info guys. To let you know the fishing was horrible only 1 keeper out of 6 boats on sat. and only 3 on sun. as for me i had 5 shorts on sat and 2 on sun. mostly on crankbaits but a couple on creature baits a couple of us tried lake calumet but not even a bite. thanks again and good fishing.
