Cougar Lake, Edwardsville, IL

AKA Tower lake, Cougar lake is located on the SIUE Campus in Edwardsville, IL. This will be my first time getting out this entire year, (employment sucks), and with the heat index projected @ 105, my hopes are not too high. I have only fished near the marina before, and am bringing my bicycle early in the morning so that i can make it around the entire lake by the end of the day. Timne permitting, I may also hit the lake on fridaq afternoon and evening.

Never thought the bass in cougar lake/tower lake could get this big. Another person fishing there (the camera man) had a scale that weighed it at 6lbs 8oz.

Frigid water pours out of a culvert here. Holy sweet mother of tim. I caught the 3 largest bass i have ever seen alive here! plus at least 10 others that were smaller, but still fun to catch. 3 over 6 lbs, the rest under 3.

No I have lived in Granite City most of my life. I was introduced to the lake at SIUE by a family member. That is just about the only place i fish now! I love it! I see you have caught a few nice ones from cougar lake. I haven't caught anything quite that large, but I've caught a few 2 lb'ers. You from E-ville i guess?
