I am confused on what is needed to guide in Illinois. I know it depends on which water you guide on. I think that if the water is federally navigable like the lake, or all the large rivers then you need a coast guard license (captain's license). I know you have to get that 50 dollar sticker that goes on your boat from the DNR. And with that application you have to send in an inspection form. I wonder if I can fill that out myself or do I have to have someone qualified do it? And is this 50 dollar sticker/license all that I need to guide on inland lakes like heidecki or Lasalle?
