WOW! Fishing in Illinois -ft. TackleJunky81 and Phantom Fishing

I made a stop in Western Illinois for a few days and ran into some old friends who are also YouTubers. I wasn’t excited when they said we were going to be fishing Lake Coffene because the last time it was very bad. But I was pleasantly surprised when we started to catch fish almost immediately.

  1. Hey Gene, u need to check "Old Lady Angler" channel… She's great, U and Chad need to come down here to Florida and do a series with her. She deserves the Subscribers. Give her a shout on ur channel and reach out.

  2. Cool to see you fishin with someone other than your own camera! If you want some truly awesome fishing, go backwaters of the Mississippi on the Iowa border. Kick ass man.

  3. Gene I perty sure I was on Coffeen the same time y’all were out there. I live 5 mins from the lake. I would have loved to meet y’all. Have watched a lot of your vids and tune in on Friday nights too. Love ya do man and always appreciate your knowledge

  4. Found your videos this week, been binge watching. I'm a newbie fisherman and have just started getting serious about bass fishing this season. Today, using a 7ft medium gx2 with an abu garcia pro max and 12lb fluoro throwing a bright walmart square bill landed me a 4lb and a 4lb 10oz large mouth within 30 minutes of each other! Thanks for the tips

  5. Just found out about you a few weeks ago Gene. I've been more of just a 'casual' bass angler, mainly just throwing senkos and spinner baits, but never really knowing why or what or where. You've shown me a lot and i'm slowly starting to understand more why I should use a certain lure when! Keep it up, they're great.
