Red Hot Action on Big Southern Illinois Skis Now

Located in the heart of the magnificent Shawnee National Forest of the Southern Illinois Ozark Mountains lies one of the world’s very best muskie fishing waters.

A happy client of Colby Simms Outdoors shows off a big muskie caught on a guided trip with Colby.

Just minutes from the college city of Carbondale, Ill., Kinkaid Lake is little more than a rock’s throw from Missouri and not far from Kentucky, either.

Less than 2 hours from Saint Louis and Paducah, only about 3 hours from Evansville, and less than 6 hours from Chicago, famous Kinkaid Lake has been rated as one of the world’s top 10 muskie fisheries for over a decade, and draws anglers from all over the country and even beyond!

In fact, we’ve guided charter clients from as far away as South America and Europe, anglers longing to go toe to toe with what many consider to be the greatest freshwater fish in the entire world!
