he Jake Wolf Memorial Tournament, sponsored by the IMA, is scheduled for May 17. The prize money is based on a 30-boat entry. In the event fewer boats are entered, the prize will be adjusted accordingly. Contact Frank Walter at (847) 689-2133 or [email protected]. Proceeds from the IMA tournaments help to fund Illinois' fisheries management, especially the state's burgeoning muskie fishery.
• If you're a bowfisher, April 26 is the date of the Three Rivers Shoot Out, on the Des Plaines, Kankakee and Illinois (Wilmington) rivers.
The Big 20 format, with optional big and small fish pots, will be on tack, according to Illinois Bow Fishing advocate Ed Devries.
"We will have a barbecue before the shoot, door prizes, 50-50 raffles - and all for a $10 entry fee, $5 for big or small fish pots (optional).
"This is the first of two shoots we will be holding at the confluence of the DesPlaines, Kankakee and Illinois rivers," according to Devries, who hails from Tinley Park. "The shoot will be based out of the 3-Rivers Marina, in Wilmington, but bowfishermen can also use any ramps on the Kankakee River or its backwaters in the Des Plaines Conservation area where they are open. This is a very popular and productive bowfishing area with large backwaters and three rivers full of good-size carp, gar, buffalo and bighead carp. It is open to boat or bank bowfishermen, and the bank bowfisherman can do very well there as the backwaters are full of the biggest buffalo."
• John Suva, chairman of the Lockport chapter of Ducks Unlimited, reports that, "The Lockport Chapter will celebrate its 30th year in 2008. We will host the annual dinner on April 11, at Woodbine Golf Course, 14240 W. 151 St., Homer Glen. The event starts at 6 p.m. We will have a live auction, silent auction and various raffles throughout the evening."
Advanced tickets (purchased by April 3) not only save money but also entitle the purchaser to an Early Bird Special package that is being offered.
For tickets, to volunteer or for additional information, contact John Suva at (708) 301-8366 or Dan Tully at (708) 301-1326.
