Bass & Gill club sounds fun- do you have guest speakers ever there? I would be interested in doing club seminar and fishing there. Sorry about the troubles signing up for that May 8th event- you I hope you will fish with us Saturday. You can email me - email@example.com for information. You can use this image when it asks for an image. Let me know if it causes you more troubles.
I fish in Downers Grove and Mick Thill taught me a lot! I was fishing the 42 foot pole Saturday and was snapped off by 2 large fish - I have to create some new rigs to go after some of those channels and carps that were busting my 3.5 lb.
We will be fishing our league event in Bloomingdale coming up if you are interested. Check out the fishing league page.
I don't fish the long pole in club events as much because I want to have people see the more "standard" tackle.
You can check out ChicagoFishingSchool.com - there are event links and details there.
