Here's a tip for you bargain hunters.
While shopping the Schaumburg Costco (not my number 1 tackle shop) I noticed a few items worth looking at if you or a friend has a card that will get you in.
A 10? Kayak 275 lb capacity with paddle, spray skirt, and car top carrier all for $349.95. Don?t expect Olympic performance. But this gets you everything you need to get started.
Men?s Breathable Nylon rain suits for $29.95.
If I was in the market for either I would give them a closer look. Of course, call your Costco to see if they have the same sales going on.
