Ive been lurking on this website for some time now and finally decided to register and post up.
I live in Glenview/Mt. Prospect area so most of my fishing takes place at local forest preserves.
I am thinking of getting a sit on-top kayak, specificaly this model:

It is a tandem since i would take my girlfriend with me some times, but it also converts into a single man kayak and judging from the reviews it is doing its job. Have any of you my fellow fishermen used this model ? Is it worth getting ? and what should i know about fishing off of a kayak in Illinois before i get one ?
