Pat’s Testimonials

I’m Proud to say I’m part of the Lake County Watersports family. About a year and a half ago Mike and I started talking about a Pro Staff agreement and a month or so later it happened. I became the first Pro Staff member LCWS has ever had. We hit the ground running doing seminars and events to share with customers. During this time Lake County had me go through classes to become and Evinrude Pro Staff member and got me an outstanding deal on a new E-tec. Shortly afterward, they also had me go through Princecraft Pro Staff system, which is one of the reasons I am fishing out of a new custom rigged Princecraft Nanook for the 2015 season. Mike and everyone at the store and shop do everything they can for their customers. I’ve been in the fishing community over 40 years and I have to say it would be hard to find a dealer that will work harder for you. There are 3 Platinum service centers in Illinois for BRP Evinrude outboards and Lake County Watersports and their sister company Wauconda Boat are two of the three….  that should say something about them. I am Proud to be a part of Lake County Watersports family.
