Yesterday was the second day of fishing in the second year of Illinois high school state fishing tournaments. Once again this year Lake Carlyle hosted and once again weather played a role. Second day fishing was called of last year due to strong storms. This year strong winds lead IHSA officials to deem one side of the lake as off limits for the second day.
Illini West (Carthage) won the tournament with 30lb 5oz after finishing in sixth after the first day. Moline squeaked into second with 25lb 8oz and Alden-Hebron placed third with 25lb 6oz.
