    Of the few lakes that are at the WSRC, which one offers the best on shore fishing? Also, do you need an Illinois Fishing Licence?

    I posted this picture last year when someone asked about fishing around the WSRC. This gal can give you some pointers. She is Ms Sparta.

    I am pretty sure if your 15 or younger you can. After that a Lic. is needed

    Since you all hijacked my thread. I can tell you that the pictures on this thread are the Trap Setters for the Grand American that starts next week. I was told by an ATA Official that as runnerup in the Lewis shoot off, you can spend 1 hr. in a trap house with your choice (in 100 degree weather).

    blade, I would be happy to take you with me. I generally go around 5:30am n fish till around 8.I like the big lake myself, s/w part should you not want to join me.

    A state lic. is required which can be purchased on the grounds. I usually opt for a 10 day out of state. One day can be purchased though.

    I'd go but I can't get up that early. I'm more of an evening fisherman.

    master... did you say 5:30 AM ? You're kidding right? There ain't a BASS in this world that I would get up that early for. Now for the pictures trap setters maybe! Jerry, I check in with you and Jack late Sunday afternoon.

    Sorry,

    The only women I have seen built like that are not from Illinois, they are actually from Missouri. ( however, they are not from the Linn Creek area, either) LOL
