    I just mentioned to my wife that they need to expand the parks to fit everyone that comes down every weekend. Just need to clean up the mess and we should have lots more room to spread out.

    Latest Bronzeback Bulletin

    I work for LSC, formerly part of RRD. Been working with magazines for 18 years. If you ever want to discuss ways to lower cost of production, let me know. I can get quotes on print bind as well as ways to lower postage. Rates go up again in January. Looks like around 2% for most mail classes.

    Latest Bronzeback Bulletin

    I second that. My wife sent me a text and told me she read it front to back yesterday. She said it was very cool that people care so much about smallmouth and the conservation of illinois waters. Btw, who prints this for ISA?

    Clouser minnows! Change the weight based on depth and current. Change the hook to a jig hook if you want to drift under indicators.

    10 to 15 Thousand Smallmouth

    Looks like I needed to proofread. Anyway, I learned today that I have visitors at work from the USPS that entire week. I will have to back out. Heck, if they find issues, I may be in jail... Don't mess with the USPS LOL

    I am can commit to helping
  8. Im starting to see the makings of a spin vs. fly losers buy lunch in Utica bet........ or a big fish pot......
  9. Can we get a count of fly guys and spin guys?
  10. Starved Rock pet resort is near by. In fact, it is on the Vermillion upstreamnear a bridge...... I take my three dogs there when my wife and i go out of town. There are a few more kennels near the put in as well. Time on the water will vary. It depends on how John keeps the pace. If it were me leading, we would be there till the early winter bite. Good news, if anyone has limitied time, there are places to get out earlier than the rest. Specifically, miles 1 through 3 are easy outs. After that, i am not too familiar with take outs. John might have a much better idea. The lower portion is his turf.
  11. Does he need a yak or canoe? Maybe I can help.
  12. Either way, count me in. I am just up the hill from Lowell. How could I let all you guys go without me.
  13. Sounds like a tough task. Water is very low. At least by Lowell anyway. So I would wish for a little rain if you are floating.

    Can I legally Fish the Kish?

    This topic is one that has been an issue with me since I was yelled at for fishing a section of a smaller stream. The state isn't very good about offering access to bodies of water they manage and protect. So basically, funds are being used to manage private waters for land owners only. If land owners want to own the waters, I feel they should pay taxes to protect what they claim to own. If they do not want to pay up, then leave it for public access. Just copy Wisconsin's waterway rules and this state would see more people come to vacation here than everyone heading up to MI, WI, MN.
