The event will be located directly behind REI off of 22nd Street (just West of Route 83 on the right-hand side). Towards the back of the parking lot there is a gate on the right – you will see us there.

Please offer some time with yourself, kids, family, friends or neighbors Friday, July 5th – July 6th volunteering. There will be snacks and drinks available to our fish judges. This is a great family event for the weekend. Please call to volunteer for a shift with the time you are available to 630-235-2162.

Volunteering is simple work for anyone ages 10 and up. Your shifts will be easy, checking boxes for each fish caught, marking the time they were caught and weight. Be a part of a fundraiser and exciting activity as Johnny tries to best the Guinness World Record® for most fish caught in 24 hours. Watch as fish are caught in rapid fashion, logged and counted towards the goal of catching the most fish in one day.

I run a Chicago suburban fishing club with social fishing events, I teach fishing and am bringing old-time tackle forgetting, neglected and "supposedly replaced" by new-fangled lures BACK! The death of fishing has been greatly exaggerated. The truth is companies trying to strike it rich came up with great snake oils, elixirs and potions called "lures". These lures worked much better on anglers who hit these things on shelves than they worked on the end users - the fish. Well - America has old tackle boxes filled to the brim with these things and anglers parents have forgotten their roots - they don't know how to catch fish. When the fishing gets tough, near cities, in tough fishing conditions the odds are too much. WRONG. If you keep your tackle box shut and keep your mind open, you can catch fish using simple tactics and tackle rigs. I am making these available because this fishing changed my life. I have fished in 3 World Championships for Team U.S.A. and fished in 8 countries for America. Fishing is about action and catching fish. Fishing isn't switching lures until you give up. It's about catching lots of fish and big fish. I am taking my experience and bringing it to you so you can have success near home on a pond, lake or stream closest to home. Get inspired, listen to my podcast, try some new tactics because these are tactics that are 100s of years old and THEY WORK. - Johnny
