    Just started fly tying, love to bow hunt and have hunted for 20 yrs, love fishing for everything from bluegill to carp, also enjoy bowfishing when the fish won't bite. I try to clean up the river to make it better for the future and enjoy the ISA activities.
  1. I would attend but I plan to fulfill the guide trip I offered at the blow out on saturday. Conditions look good. If not I will be there.
  2. I'm going to chime in here and go with Eugene on this one. Perhaps invasive introductions are inevitable, however, there could have been more done to prevent the escape of asian carp by enforcing very strict governement regulations. Same with zebra muscles...the balast water that shipping ships use could have been better regulated; this may have slowed down the introduction. In any case, the problem of invasives can be controlled but not prevented when proper actions are taken. The difficult part is funding...which again is the government's realm of control. The sad part of this is there
  3. 7-830 Naper Set5tlement Visitor Center $5.00 Dan will display is collection of historic fishing tackle that spans more than 5000 years. He will be available to appraise items. registration recommended but tickets are available at the door.
  4. I'm not certain how this will play into conservation but it seems that it makes sense and may be another step in the right direction. Awareness of how water is managed, utilized, and conserved all plays a part in the future of our water ways...feel free to comment..... HB3372 Amends the Counties Code. Provides that a county board in a metropolitan county located in the area served by the Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission, or Madison, St. Clair, Monroe, Kankakee, Grundy, LaSalle, DeKalb, Kendall, or Boone county, that has adopted a stormwater management plan may adopt a sch
  5. Are the carp spawning yet or is it too cold. I haven't been out yet to check....often I bowfish the rivers but if there is action on the lake I'm sure the rivers are getting ready... Any advice? What about flies....any in particular work well this time of year?
  6. Hi guys, thanks for the advice. I actually signed my dad up for a club....like ISA but for RC planes! Who woulda thought!? I like the simulator idea....that would've been perfect but he doesn't have a computer.
  7. Yep the title is right...my dad is retiring and I wanted to give him something he always wanted....he always wanted to learn how to fly remote control airplanes. Anyone willing to give him lessons? I'm offering 10 per session using your gear. With your guidance your equipment should be safe. Lombard area. Jim
  8. If I read this right...this money will be allocated toward things like stream banks and habitat preservation. Another possible step in the right direction. If this passes it would be a good idea to watch how the money is allocated. Illinois House Bill 1082 http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/BillStatus.asp?DocTypeID=HB&DocNum=1082&GAID=11&SessionID=84&LegID=56900 Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Counties Code.

  9. Well, it certainly didn't take long....the state bumped up the fees to buy a deer tag. Fees will be going up and state parks will again be funded by fisherman and hunters. Maybe a jogger or biker, or picnicker, ect. should be required to buy a state park tag and all outdoorsman with a license would be exempt. Just like fishing licenses, a visitor can be checked for their "park user fee" license...if they don't have it when checked they should get a fine just like the rest of us.
  10. I plan to come out. I won't make it for breakfast but I'll be out there to help. Jim
  11. There are always two sides of a coin....you just hope that the side you pick is more beneficial than the other. In this case there is an upside....for people who do not buy fishing licenses, an entrance fee would be a means for them to pay their fair share....maybe. It still comes down to enforcement though. I was thinking about this earlier today, for all laws we have....if no one is around to enforce the laws, what makes someone follow them besides their own conscious? Unfortunately, many people these days are not ethical nor honest...if that were the case we wouldn't need any regulation
  12. Maybe not tying smallies to cancer...maybe erectile dysfunction...that would get some attention!
  13. I agree with Rich that money in this state has been spent irresponsibly. I for one would have been the first to knock down this proposal. However, I believe that the future depends on responsible spending. With new leadership it's going in the right direction but slowly. I like the dedicated fund idea as long as it is truely dedicated. I was in Minnesota and they had a yearly sticker that cost $25.00. In Atlanta Georga I paid a daily fee of $3.00. Personally I can go either way on this....but I have to have hope. Ever since I was a kid the fishing really stunk in Illinois. Now t

I feel that it's over due....more people equals more use of our resources. It shouldn't just be paid by hunters and fisherman. If not, you can tell your representative that you don't support it. I think it's a good idea. Maintenance and programs cost money....that's
