Does anyone know if it is legal to chum in Illinois ? Seems like I read something about it on here, can't recall. I don't see anything about it in the regulations.

i dont recall seeing anything that said it illegal. ill check the guide. i think is ok.
I chum and I will continue to chum until I hear anything different. I think this topic was up on the old board somewhere.
I've never chummed before, but it sounds like a good idea from the results that I have heard. Good Luck Fishin Brothers!! ;)
Do you think that chumming might put too much scent in the water and confuse the fish? :confused:
i have still seen nothing on it in the regs. just be carefull what ya use. any fish entrails and carcusses dumped into the water can result in a fine. baitfish im sure is another thing but thats all the discerssion of the officer i presume.
