Like I said, I took my husband on a fishing trip to Chicago last week for this birthday. Overall the trip was great and he was very surprised. The only thing that went wrong was while we were there we had an abundance of our gear stolen. It's far fetched but if anyone comes across 3 poles and a tackle box all with the name "Gary" on them, please contact me. It was nice to get back to the states for a weekend. We have been living in UK for Gary's job for the past 5 years. Thanks for the advice before. It really helped make the trip successful despite our stuff being stolen.
