yes it is open, saw it on the news here in Champaign. I am going out tomorrow mainly to test out some repairs to my motor that I had done over the winter, but I will fish some if it is not too cold. Will post the results
great news indeed. going down april 18-21st/ limited out crappie in 6 hours the same weekend last year fishing from shore. with the mild winter it should be as good or better. release some bigger crappie to protect the population. if your slaying em' throw back the 9's.
Well I got out to clinton today as I said I would to "test out the repairs on my motor". Lauched at mascoutin, was not on plane for more than 1 minute, heard a terrible crunching sound and lost all power!!!! The idiot who has been working on my boat can not get the lower unit fixed right. This will be the third time I have taken it back. Needless to say I did not get any fishing done, sorry for the lack of info just venting some frustrations
