Dan Stephenson talks the past, present and future of fishing in Illinois on ``Outside'' this afternoon.
Illinois' new assistant fish chief spent some three decades in the field, before adding Springfield offices duties in recent years.
It's a well deserved promotion. He has the perspective on the broader issues of Illinois fishing.
He is actively involved in promoting Illinois fishing to the younger crowd through his involvement with Illinois' innovative high school bass fishing championship. I have bumped into Stephenson every year at the finals in Carlyle Lake.
The photo above is up the lineup of boats on the first day in 2009 at the first IHSA bass fishing championship.
