Illinois hunting and fishing

Tom Elam took his 5-year-old son, Hunter, fishing on Spring Lake In Tazewell County on Sunday. This fish bit on a white twister tail when Hunter was reeling in to relocate his line.You can see the jig hooked just outside the upper lip, allowing a 15-minute fight without cutting the line. With a little help from Tom, Hunter got the fish in the boat. “It was slightly longer than his pole, which is 30 inches long. This was the only fish we caught today, but it has to be one of the best fishing days I have had.”
