Most memorable outing in Illinois? Have had so many but often remember fishing Tator Creek with a bunch of childhood friends. Not big fish but loads of fun.

What got you interested in fishing? Don't really know. Just happened to see a couple of sports magazines about fishing and living in a small town I thought that was something I could do.

How long have you been fishing? 55 years

Favorite species to fish for? Panfish. Lots of action and good eating. Have had my bass fishing days and still do once in awhile and also do some catfishing.
