  1. it kind of funny … in europe its a sport fishing.. over here there garbage fish… but they put up a heck of a fight… i subbed. please sub back.. trying to beat the 1000 sub cutoff.

  2. @ Charles Canty, I looked up the regs on the IL DNR website. They say no discharge of a bow on, across or along side a public road way. However this would be under the bridge. I sent a question to the DNR for further guidance to the answer of your question. When I get a response I'll let you know!

    Thanks for watching!


  3. Thanks for this great video Tony. I was born, raised, and lived in Joliet the first 32 years of my life, and was proud to live there. I only regret not knowing about the great carp fishery right there in downtown. What types and pound test were you guys using for your mainlines for those carp? It's funny, because I now live in Aurora just about 2 miles from that Lake Patterson you also did a video on. After finding out how much fun it is to catch carp, I'm trying to find some good waters here in the southwest suburbs to find them. Have agreat day Tony, and thanks again!
