I was wondering if there were any restrictions on the use of cast nets on the local lakes for catching baitfish? I read online that the use of cast nets is not allowed on the Illinois River? I was wondering if this was true, and what other rivers restrict the use of cast nets? If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it. Thanks! :)

Heres somewhere to get the pdf of the il regulations guide.

http://dnr.state.il.us/fish/digest/digest.pdf

theres a lot of lake-specific regs on page 8.
I found it better to contact them.
There was i lot of stuff i found out about boats that wasn't in there guides but i would get a ticket for if stopped.
Thats our government at work for you thou.

True about the boats! Specially around lake co and the chain. Deep lake+no fire extinguisher=$75. :roll: :?

The fishing regs are probly pretty acuarate though. I think it may have something to do with the stae regulating the fishery, and leaving special traffic regualtions to the local jurisdiction. There should be a site specific boat regulations section like there is for fishing regulations.
