Was looking online at the Illinois rules and regs for fishing creel limits, the website lists channel cats as no limit, but I couldn't find any creel limits for blues and flatheads. I know you guys got em...has the state just not recognized em yet? I'm aware that once back in MO that I'm subject to our state's possession limits, even if caught in Illinois. Since we're enjoying the height of global warming here in MO-MO land, might have to hit one of yer power generating lakes before I go crazy. All I can do now is sort my fishing gear, again and again, buy stuff both here and at Cabela's and beat the dog and the wife.
