There is probably a catch limit even off the pier and the jetty. Race might know.

But it would be much easier to swallow if I'm not shelling out $80. Additionally, I can take my catch back to the cooler in the car, go have lunch, come back later and fish some more starting from zero.

Sub,
I like pontoon boats puttin' around the lake close to shore every evening during the summer at sunset.
They remind me of a time gone by. A lost innocence.
We used to go to a place in Minnesota called Lake Lizzy when I was knee-high to a grasshopper.
Those are some of my earliest memories....

Are you guys talking about a catch limit or a Keep limit? I am not aware of a limit on how many fish you can catch vs how many you can keep.
Also, Tonka is talking about a drift boat fishing, which is really pretty fun if you pack some sandwitches and beer. If you get the chance, go for a night expedition, the ocean is beautiful at night.
Usually the captian is going for a specific species of fish, and in that case a catch (or keep) limit is justified. If you have 60 people on a boat thats 600 fish (of a single species) so yeah, limits are needed. But if you catch and release everything, I dont believe they are going to stop baiting your hook after your 10th catch.
It's all about not abusing the system.
As for the pier fishing, I honestly dont know. The fish caught is so varied because you are in one place and the fish move past you. Even if a school fo fish run into the pier, it is unlikely you will be able to catch 10 yourself before they move on. Nobody checks your cooler, so I guess you could though.

Like I said, at night, just to be cruising out on the water, its worth the $80.

Thanks so much....takes me back to the adventures of 13-14 year olds, a group of us catching the L at Richton Park and going into Randolph station.....the flower stalls and coming out into the hugeness that is Chicago....a mixture of smells slam into you, bus fumes, hotdogs and steam.....we loved eating lunch at Tad's Steakhouse.....hitting S.State Street, where they had Bailey's Army-Navy Surplus...a must for teenage boys, especially before girls and cars, not necessarily in that order...lol...Good Times....

I think you meant the IC (Illinois Central) train. The old cars that had the straw seats that destroyed women's nylons and windows that opened so you could get the full blasts of hot air and dirt? I actually have a picture of this old car.

You guys sure had some big pocket money or was the steak house the ones that sold steak lunches for about $2? Steaks soaked in tenderizer for about a week...those were good. You never went into the library I suppose....:)

Wow. There is so much that hasn't changed. I am going to send this to my 83 year old father. He would have been 18 when it was shot and was working at his father's restaurant which was on the route up Michigan avenue.

Thanks

You were in Chicago for the el. Or NY.

BTW, it still smells the same down where the trains come in at Randolph.

You don't like the NSA tarcking your emails and phone calls?

You don't like Acxiom aggregating your consumer/computer data?

Think where this one could lead

Tracking whether you picked up the TV remote??!!

Well, you lived the high life. I used to take the bus to Hammond when I was 11-13 and go shopping in downtown Hammond. We'd spend all day walking around -- Weibolts, Carsons, the little candy shops...

Then they built River Oaks in Calumet City and we went there. Back when it didn't have a roof. And you could actually walk around safely before your movie. Saw Star Wars in River Oaks 1.

Do you remember Hangman's Bridge? I think that was Crete.

Maybe you went over to Indiana or Hegewisch and caught the South Shore.

Not as bad since they've redone Randolph Street station. Had reason to be over there when I took the train over to visit a friend a couple of weeks ago.

Imagine that. No buckets around catching leaking water.

ha... took forever to finish that station. The south electric line is the unloved stepchild of Metra.
