Lil Zim wrote this up but it was back in April. Who remembers anything from two months ago? Here is your reminder Dads. Illinois has a special gift for you this weekend.

According to, "The 2018 Illinois Free Fishing Days celebration coincides with Father's Day weekend — June 15 – 18. During this four-day celebration of fishing in Illinois, anglers can fish without purchasing a fishing license, salmon stamp or inland trout stamp. Discover the fun of fishing or introduce your kids to the outdoor adventure of fishing during these free fishing days! If you're new to fishing, here's a guide to everything you need to get started."

Yes, Illinois is only giving you ONE free weekend of fishing, but if we're being honest. It is kind of a big deal. The most corrupt, money stealing state in the country is actually giving you something for free.

Do you deserve more? You better believe it. But hey, you win some and you lose some. Just be grateful and take advantage of it with the kids or your friends. Whoever you would enjoy it more with. I don't judge.

Happy Father's Day!
