I've been sharing reports from some friends down in Southern Illinois.
From up north, my radio show cohost partner Jim DaRosa and mutual friend Rich Partak went to southern Illinois to try some of that good ole bass fishing on some of the smaller lakes in Williamson County.
In case you want to try fishing down south, you can get some free help in finding lodgin, dining and fishing informaion at the Williamson County Tourism Bureau. Visit www.VisitSI.com or give them a call at 1800 GEESE 99.
Branden Gibbs send and email with a couple of photos. Looks like Rich tied into a couple good ones.
Here is what Branden said...
Over all pretty tough day today on the ole pond...unless you were named Rich Partak...Rich was absolutely the shining star of the group, by far...catching three beautiful fish with the best tipping our digital scale at 6 lbs. 8 oz. This fish was a personal best for Rich, nice job partner! It was a pleasure sharing the water with you today. Take care and stay after 'em... -bg
