Illinois hunting and fishing

Christopher Tuckey caught this largemouth bass on April 2, 2010, at a private farm pond in Knox County on a green and orange double blade spinner bait. The fish measured 24 inches long, with a girth just over 19 1/2” – and it unofficially weighed in at about 10 pounds. The bass had a crappie tail over 4-inches long sticking out of his belly and will be preserved by the taxidermist.
