Don't call me tomorrow, I'll be..... Gone Fishin'

It's not that often that I take a day and just go fishing.

Normally a day on the water or in the field involves a taping of an Illinois Outdoors TV Show.  I can't help but think that every time I go, if the fish are really biting, I really want it on camera.

Not tomorrow.  Just consider me Gone fishing.

Just to give you an example of what normally happens, I added a short video clip from an Illinois Outdoors TV show at the end of this blog.

No cameras tomorrow though.  I"m fishing for fun.

Actually, I have about 15 to 20 guys who will be getting together at Shadow Lakes near Braidwood.  We will be the guests of one of the property owners.  This is a private lake.

Bluegills, crappies, bass, walleye, trout,or catfish, I don't care what bites.  I just want to have fun.

Yes, I'll report back to share with you some photos of our catches.  After all, this is the place to "Say it loud and say it proud."

If you get out this weekend, send over your ice fishing photos. I'll put them in the album with the others right here at   Send the photos to

Okay, heres the short video clip.  Will you be catching fish like this this weekend?
