When I was a young boy visiting my grandparents by the lake, I would often stand on the pier with my cane pole and fish for sunfish or bluegills, pan fish. There were these tiny fish about the size of goldfish, I was told were called blackheads which I guess were some species of catfish but were considered pests. If grandpa was along, we would use the boat and go catch northern pike or small mouth bass! I never knew that "Hillbilly Handfishing" reached up to Illinois! Better times then, now you'd need a license to catch them and another one to sell them!

Mamma Mia so good to see you again, I have missed you!
