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.

Nbbasshunter I sent you a message. The panfish bite is on right now! Good time for big crappies, gills and some white bass. A few walleyes mixed in this week. Small plastics or minnows on gold Aberdeen hooks have been best bet. Muskies have been slow the past few days. Hopefully cold weather helps out. November always brings on some good fishing!

Crappies are schooled up and feeding. Small minnows and plastics are the best bet. A few nice muskies this week on cranks. Action was slow but got a few. Gills are in shallows and active on plastics. My 2017 Alumacraft 205 competitor is now up for sale for a great price. Fully loaded. Bringing on the 2018 model soon :) I love these boats

The deeper water crappie and white bass bite is turning on. Been doing well with jigging spoons and dead sticked live bait. Bluegills are in shallows on ice jigs. Muskies are moving a bit deeper now on a variety of baits like cranks, rubber, and glides. The crappie bite will only get better as it gets colder. The muskies will be putting on the feedbag and it's the time for a possible Illinois giant. The local bass bite is still good as well

Walleye_guy, DEFINITELY get the Lake master chip. Much better and more options for color coding depths ect... It's a game changer without a doubt. Im 99.9 ? sure Bago and all the big bodies of water in Wisconsin are on the chip. I have not been on Bago since I have the chip but all the lakes I have been on in the last few years have been on it. If you have any questions on the set up of the chip feel free to ask. I'm sure YouTube will have a video on that as well tho. It's very easy and you don't have to be a computer programmer to figure it out. If I can do it anyone can. :)
