Welcome to Illinois Central Legacy Division:

If you are looking for a fun and competitive bass fishing experience that you can share with your son, daughter, grandchild or just a young person you know that likes to fish, then the ILLINOIS Central Legacy Division of Fishers of Men is for you. Fishers of Men National Tournament Trail offers a first-class bass fishing experience with an opportunity to compete at a National level as well. In order to be eligible to compete in the National Championship a team needs to enter and fish a single tournament and attend one Friday evening or Saturday meeting. We are looking forward to a great year of fishing, fun and fellowship.


The post-tournament meetings after each event are what sets Fishers of Men apart from other trails. We have great food, fellowship and an inspirational message at each meeting. Many of our anglers have told us that the meeting is their favorite part of the tournament weekend. With the good food and great fellowship, its easy to see why. Many of our teams have made friendships that will last a lifetime. Our members, their families and guests are spiritually encouraged and challenged by messages from inspirational speakers. We have seen God's hand at work in the lives of many of our anglers. If you would like to join Fishers of Men and become a member of the Illinois Central Division, please contact Carl Parks at 217.621.1386. You can also email him at cparks@fomntt.com or carlparksy@aol.com.
