I have been fishing as far back as I can remember. Ever since the day grandpa took me to the local pond to catch bluegills and bullheads at age three, I have been completely in love with the sport!

Camp Fish was a fishing school started by the famous Al Lindner and the In-Fisherman crew. I had the opportunity to learn from the best in the business for a week out of every year for 5 years in a row! It was a fantastic experience to learn and to become a much better fisherman. By 16 years old, I had my own boat and fished as often as I could. Throughout my years of fishing, not only was I lucky enough to fish with my grandpa, and the guys at the In-Fisherman, but I also became friends with pro fisherman and guide Sean Bermingham at a young age. Sean took me under his wing and really helped me become an even better and more well-rounded angler.

By my early twenties, I had a very good understanding of the sport and wanted to take my skills to the next level. Between doing well in local tournaments and getting the opportunity to fish with pro fisherman, I knew that I one day I wanted to be able to teach others what I had learned along the way. In recent years I have also had the opportunity to become friends and fish with Hall of Fame Angler, Spence Petros. I have been blessed to have the opportunity to be able to fish with the best of the best, and I would love to be able to teach you everything I have learned throughout the years.

Recent Fishing Reports:

Fox Chain, Lake County

The walleye fishing this past 2 weeks has been very good. The fish are post spawn and eating.a combination of jigging and trolling has given us limits quickly. Unfortunately not sure what this cold front is going to do to the fishing the next week. The white bass and yellow bass are spawning and active as well so hopefully that stays strong. Again, in my boat we keep the 14-17.5" and everything else goes back for future spawning.

Fox Chain, Lake County

Fishing has been good this week. The warm up ignited a good Walleye bite. Jigs, cranks, and live bait are the best options. The bite should stay steady with good weather

Fox Chain, Lake County

Fishing continues to be decent. Of course some days are much better than others and the fish tend to cooperate more under certain conditions. Still getting good numbers of panfish and the bigger fish have moved into spawn. Plastics continue to be the best bet. Few walleyes and big white bass are showing up and are becoming more active. It's a good time to be out fishing!

Fox Chain, Lake County

Fishing is still good this week. A lot of fish but doing a lot of sorting to find keepers. As of today, the Fox waterway agency website has made the entire chain NO WAKE.  I am thinking by Monday or Tuesday it should be ok but we'll have to see. 

Fox Chain, Lake County

The fishing has been good for crappies, bluegills, white and yellow bass and a few walleyes. Jig and plastics have been our best best. The water levels are still low but starting Saturday they will begin to raise them again. Fishing will only get better with warm weather and rising water levels.
