Bassin' The Midwest

I hadn't been on DuPageAngler.com long before I discovered how many friendly and helpful people there were on the site.  Any question I had got answered quickly and in as much detail as I wanted; I soaked it in.  

I met Alan (aka Fluke) for the first time at Bass Pro Shops in Bolingbrook, IL.  We met there so he could show me the differences in baitcasting reels and what to look for in a carbon-fiber rod.  An engineer by trade he was able to explain what features gear had that were beneficial and which were fluff.

Fluke's inaugural post in his blog Bassin' The Midwest gives you a window into his fishing past and future.  I look forward to following his successes this year, his first year fishing bass tournaments.
