From Mike Garthaus:


I ordered some plants last week and waiting to get them in.  I am hoping I can plant them this Friday.  I am going to Evergreen Lake first and then Clinton.  I am going to plant some tomorrow but I do not need help.  

The Evergreen group will meet at 9 am this Friday and when we are done there I will go to Clinton.  
I think a good guess for a time would be 12:30 at the site office at Clinton Lake.  That is the office near the Mascoutin ramp and not the regional office on 54.  

Questions or comments, contact Mike Garthaus

It is with heavy heart that I must inform the members that Robby “ Bigy” Bigliazzi past away on May 1st. Bigy as he was known to all of us was born on April 22, 1938 and resided in Farmington.    Biggi was a long time member and supporter of the Illinois Bass Federation.  He supported us on all facets, He fished the open trail, 6man team and many other events that we have held in the past.  Biggi  has fished on our state team and won our Open Trail classic on the Fox Chain of Lakes.  I will always remember him as the only person I know that would flip the heaviest cover he could find with a spinning rod.  He will be greatly missed.
