Eric Patrick of Rochelle has enjoyed fishing with friends and family for as long as he can remember, but he has really become an enthusiast of the sport over the last 15 years.

Whenever the weather allows, and work is not calling his name, Patrick spends a lot of his free time fishing locally or at fishing holes in nearby states.

Some locales he has chosen to try his luck at over the years include the Mississippi River with co-worker Randy Martin near Bellview, Iowa. He also fishes at Rochelle’s Lake Sule or the area close to where he grew up in Chana on the Kyte Creek.

You can also see Patrick fishing in Lake Lida down on the southside of Rochelle or Shabbona Lake.
