    So, anyone have those mid-winter blues???
    Tired of looking at your pretty rods & reels collecting dust???
    What about those shiny new hooks you bought with Christmas money???

    WELL, How about a coffee next to the vehicle, and a morning of fishing???
    When and where you might ask???

    How about February 17th or 18th, at Powerton Lake in Pekin Illinois. If I remember correctly the lake will be open to boating then.

    All who may be interested, please leave a post. After a week, we will see if this is plausable.

    I guess we'll see what the majority thinks. I figured Jeremy and Lonnie would have voiced an opinion by now.

    gargoil 77 - It is about 260 miles or about a 4.75 hour drive from Herrin to Pekin. I grew up in Pekin and now live in Mattoon which is about half way between Herrin and Pekin.
