Has anyone been down to look at the Illinois River in the past few days. It looks cool. All ice except where the barges go though. Even it is like slush. I think I need to see if I can rent an ice breaker from the Coast Guard and break it all up. Now that would be fun. I want to fish so bad. Do you think anyone would say anything if I hooked up the boat and had my wife just drive me around on the fox as I sit in the boat and pretend I'm fishing?
