    Default Labor Day, Morris Il

    I am trying to get a few people together for Labor day on the Illinois river in Morris Il. Should be a good time for all. Jetboats, weedwhackers, offshore, v-drive all are welcome. We even have a guy coming down with a house boat.

    Yes I was planning on launching at the state park just off of rt 47 in Morris. This is a big stretch of river, there is a couple mile stretch that is usually relatively calm and a real long stretch that gets pretty choppy from the bigger boats. A few of us from the bad apples site and some other locals so far will be out there on Monday (Labor day). I would recommend getting there by 11am to avoid a long line to launch.

    Don't you guys get beat up by the Baja's and Cruiser's up there? A little more smoother down river, by Seneca.

    Actually it is just the opposite, It is smoother up river toward the power plant, it is much more choppy down toward seneca.
