Kayak Fishing video shoot on the Great Lakes

After Chicago I headed north to meet up with Rob Wendel and head out to his favorite fishing location on the Great Lakes. 

Rob Wendel is a Hobie reginal fishing team member that fishes from a Mirage Pro Angler 14. Rob explains why he chooses the PA14, how he has rigged his hull and shares some of his techniques for fishing in the Great Lakes.
