Tony Mariotti
Detroit Lakes, MN

As a kid Tony grew up on the lakes of Ottertail County, and spent most weekends at “the cabin” on the Cass Lake chain in Northern MN. He spent many summers watching and learning new techniques of locating and enticing fish to bite from his father, Joe, whom he credits for giving him his love of fishing.

After spending a few years as a teacher in Northern MN, Tony moved back to the Detroit Lakes area where he could get back to chasing the giant panfish that intrigued him as a young man. A frequent guest on Jason Mitchell Outdoors, with help from Vexilar, Clam Outdoors and Northland fishing tackle, Tony is usually on the fish and always willing to share information on lakes or a good bite with others.
