    Going to head out the next couple of days and check some of my spots. Was wondering if anyone else in Central Illinois has had any luck?

    I'm going to try to go south this weekend with my wife for our anniversary and look all weekend. Does Anyone have a place they would suggest? All my places here still no sign.

    Nothing in Peoria county yet, but I haven't looked too hard either, might check on Monday after these few warm days. Not really expecting much til it warms up more

    I found medium sized greys last week in coles county. And found about a pound today, and my first yellows of the season. They weren't fully grown yet. A lot of lil guys coming up too...

    Catfish12,
    THAT IS AWESOME. I was just down there the past wknd but wasnt able to hit the woods. I saw the may apples still coming up so I didnt want to disturb anything. Was this private or public land. My honey hole is down there and Im coming back down to take a look there on Sat morning
