    John, I dont know nothing for sure, but I'm bet my left shoe that if you fish on Illinois land, you need an Illinois fishing licence or if I fish in your state, I'll needs its licence. Them states aren't going to give away any money:smile2:

    Read the book, it will definately tell you. Oh by the way it's a 75.00 fine for each offense in Illinois.

    Acording to MDC regulations,see below for link, you ARE able to fish the Mississippi River, from the bank, on either side of the river. This was a no brainer for them to come up with that aggreement. There a parts of the state of IL on the west side of the river and parts of MO on the east side of the river. Most folks think the river is the boundry, but that is not entirely the case. Below Alton Dam is one example. Both sides of the river are in IL.

    I'm sure its quite like The agreement that Kansas and Missouri have for the portion of the Missouri River THat is the boundry between the states. You are allowed to fish the River with either states licence as long as your in the "boundry waters"

    The rules of your state apply as long as your anchored 10 feet off of the bank of the other state.
