You need to have a valid Illinois fishing license and should bring your camera, 
fishing gear, rain suit, sunglasses
(should be polarized), sunscreen, bug/tick repellent,
 waders, wading shoes (if we are wading) and beverages.

Since you will be choosing either a species, style to learn, or Lake vs river fishing, there will be things to discuss about your choices,
like the right equipment, when, and where. We will set these plans into motion once you have made your choice. Largemouth,
lure fishing is an example. I am also a fan of live bait and I am willing to teach that as well. Bank fishing for carp or
drifting for smallmouth are just a couple options.

Dan is an In-Fisherman Master Angler, pro-staffer for DuPage Angler.com, the owner of DuPage Fishing Guide Service, and is now excited to be a pro staffer for Crabby Bass Lures as well as Aurora Lures! He has fished both bass and walleye tournaments, fished Canada several times, and fished Florida. Boat, shore, wading, ice, and fly fishing are all styles he is familiar with. After years of boat and shore fishing, Dan will head to a river for wading if given the opportunity. Artificial baits and flies are two of his biggest strengths. Dan is an expert wader and is a master of presenting live bait with the most efficient techniques, and tackle. He is a expert ice fisherman who is always happy to take new guys out.
