Illinois fishing: Whitefish & burbot

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Click here for the improbable feat of catching firsts in two Illinois fishing records--burbot and lake whitefish--by Capt. Tim Wojnicz.

He caught both records while perch fishing with clients out of Waukegan this spring.

Far bigger burbot and whitefish have been caught in Illinois waters, so I expect both records to be surpassed quickly.
