I know it's early for Illinois, but I didn't want a meet to be a last minute thing. The last few years I have been able to fish a private pond close by. I was granted access because I had posted something on the boards looking for local members to fish with. I recieved a call from the club asking if it was okay to publish it in the NAFC monthly magazine. I said sure. I got about 4 responses from that ad and one of them was to be able to fish a private pond. Membership does have it's preveledges!!
I've caught Bass, Crappie, Bluegill and Catfish ice fishing on that lake. I hear there are Walleye too, but haven't caught one yet. Maybe we could meet on his lake if I ask him.
