Illinois’ famous flying fish are the focus of the “Original Redneck Fishin’ Tournament” in the Mason County community of Bath. Organizer Betty DeFord says be careful though because the Asian carp is a menace since they beat out other fish for food and jump out of the water.
The event is this Friday and Saturday and includes costumes and live entertainment. Proceeds benefit homeless veterans. More information is on-line at www.originalredneckfishin.com.
