Most memorable outing in Illinois? About 2 weeks ago I was fishing the Illinois River near Pekin and I caught a 28-inch, 10-pound, 10-ounce catfish. My 8-pound test line broke and I had a "bobber stopper" on the line. It broke above the bobber. I thought I just lost it. But in a few minutes I saw the bobber going up and down. So I got closer and tried to get it buy casting for it. On the third cast I caught it and pulled it slowly to the boat. I leaned over and got the fish with a dip net.
