West central Illinois is big catfish country, with a few stripers and musky nearby, but nothing is better than the east coast surf, and nothing there has been better to me than the Carolina coast. All I can do most years is dream of coming out, but every so often the tackle monkey jumps me and makes me stock up a bit more for the trip. Keep those fishing reports and lure tips coming.

West-central Illinois, huh?
My mom grew up in the Galesburg area, my uncle runs a B'n'B in a town called Dahinda, just west of Galesburg. My dad grew up in the central part of the state, in Sullivan, between Decatur and Matoon.

Both of my folks, all of my dad's siblings, my oldest cousin, and my next brother down are all Illini grads.

Welcome aboard!

Greetings. Sullivan is near Lake Shelbyville, a hot place for smallish (but growing) musky [minimum 48 inches]. That's about 100 miles east of me but the closest tailwater fishing for musky. A musky is sort of a king on prozac but still fun. Been through Dahinda, but always on the run.

Indeed it is. I've never fished it, but I've heard good things. My grandfather's house is right across the street from Wyman Park.

If ya need a quiet weekend away with your wife, look up The Barn.
