    That's right Frank. They mistakenly don't believe they do well there based on what I believe to be a flawed study there...ALL of the big ones I have seen from Illiinois have been "Spots"!! Up to 53-inches...

    I can't find a good pic anywhere but the 54 from McMaster looks to have also been a spot.

    Hey I know that guy! I remember everything about that trip even though it's been over 10 years. Sitting on the shore & holding that fish by the tail for 40 minutes waiting for someone to come along so I could get a pic & release her was pretty cool. A fun day for sure!

    Yup, the unofficial state record and the release is the best part of the whole story. No argument or or questioning the length or weigh in, just you believe it or you don't and nobody cares. Atta boy TC!
