This has been my second year Bass fishing. I grew up on the Gulf of Mexico salt water fishing (speks, red fish, flounder) but have had some success ...more w LMB at Skokie Lagoons, Busse Woods and Beck Lake. I just got my first fishing kayak (Tamarac Angler 100) and have only had it out a couple of times...good trip on 2nd time out w three nice LMB w the biggest at 3.4lb
