Filleting Freshwater Fish

Filleting Freshwater Game Fish

A seemingly constant -- and heated, at times -- debate has always taken place between residents of the state of Wisconsin and their neighbors to the south, Illinoisans.  It is a debate that will likely not be settled in the near future...  One thing is for sure, the Land of Lincoln has plenty to offer, whether one is a resident, a visitor, or someone simply passing through.  There are opportunities a-plenty -- from north to south and east to west.

The fifth most populated state in the country is located centrally, offering transportation access by plane or rail to any other part of the country.  There is history galore, plenty of venues for sports, cultural and ethnic events, and cities of every size form village-size to the megalopolis of Chicago and numerous higher institutions of learning.    

But the real surprise is the lengthy list of parks and natural resources and recreational opportunities that available all year long.  Hunting, fishing, boating and other outdoor activities abound. From small ponds to the Greatest Lake of all: Michigan; the possibilities are endless.  So take a look at what Illinois has to offer; you won't be disappointed!
