    Good Luck, hope the weather holds out for ya...

    I'm hoping to load the boat up later this summer, find a nice sandbar on the sangamon, and spend a nite or two chasing flatheads.. You can find some pretty out of the way places on that little river via boat :wink:

    Stick didnt you get a boat this spring.Also do you work for Cat and if so what building.I work in KK in East Peoria on the shaft line. ask anyone where i work and they will know.We got to get you off the bank and out on the river this year,i am going for the first time this year on Saturday but we go up to Chilli to put in and head up river but will hook up and fish your part maybe around Liverpool as they have a ramp.

    Just apply for a homemade trailer, its chaeper and faster.
