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.

My partner Matt has been on a great local bass bite and typically stays on the bass all season. For those interested in bass fishing or getting into tournament fishing Matt is one of the best bass fisherman I have encountered.

Walleye fishing has really picked up in the past week or so. Jig and crawler has been very good for us mixed in with some trolling small cranks like #5 flicker shads or Vexan Wasps. Between myself and my partners Lincoln and Andy, we have been on a good pattern for numbers and size. The next month or so should be good if we can keep consistent weather patterns. Muskies have been eating too and are pretty much done with spawn.

The panfish have been nothing short of outstanding. We really have a remarkable fishery for them. 100-200 per day has been about average. Plastics in warmer water temps is the key. Walleyes and muskies have both been picking up and only getting better. Thanks for the kind words about Andy! He's a great addition to our team and we're glad to have him onboard. Along with Lincoln, Matt and myself, we have a great network and a lot of good knowledge to share. Enjoy this great fishery that our state has provided and I will see you out there
