It's some of the best fishing in the Midwest - the beautiful Ohio River, near the historic towns of Golconda and Elizabethtown in Southern Illinois.

If you're looking for somebody to guide you around to the best spots, professional Crappie fisherman and guide, Kyle Schoenherr is ready and able. Fishing since he was old enough to grab a pole, Schoenherr is a champion freshwater fisherman. And he'll take you anywhere you want to go in the Southern Illinois region.

For $150 ($300 for the entire day), the amiable Schoenherr picks you and a friend or loved one up at the Golconda marina.

You don't have to worry about a thing. He provides fishing poles, bait and a lifetime of experience fishing the quiet backwaters of the mighty Ohio.

Leave the Blackberry at home – no multi-tasking on the water - because we're goin' fishin ! And check out these great places to stay … just a short drive from the Golconda Marina.
