Not saying I. Just stated a fact I can't find any cases thus far. Could be my search, but nothing has came up. Then again IL Circuit Courts aren't in the search unless they have been challenged to a higher court, which you implied they have been.

I can tell you, beyond all shadow of a doubt, that that is NOT the way it is on those two pools. Once you drop anchor, you are trespassing. It has been upheld in numerous courts, both state and federal, in Illinois, Iowa and Missouri, some of the people with deep pockets and fancy lawyers...but they still lost.

Any idea if the "If you anchor, you are trespassing" rule has been tested by newer technology such as Minn kota 'spot lock' where the electric trolling motor keeps you within a few feet of a specific location? I know a few guys that would do it just to try it and ruffle feathers.....

Only problem w/ that is Illinois law states you must be "Anchored" to hunt. When you are anchored you are trespassing !!
