Over the years I have fished for freshwater fish throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Canada. For as long as I can remember my father introduced me to fishing when I was four years old with a Snoopy fishing pole. We fished for sunnies using worms and I still remember the anticipation and excitement I had when that sunfish tugged on my bobber… It would be a weekend thing and I always asked him when we would go out again. By the time I was 11 we had moved to a new house and about a mile away there was a small local lake. One day a friend of mine in elementary school had told me that a guy at the lake had a stringer of gigantic northerns! By this time my father had given up fishing for gardening. I remember riding my bike out to the lake and when I got there the guy had three really nice northerns on his stringer and he hooked another as I approached him. I immediately went home, grabbed my fishing pole with a 3″ yellow Mister Twister Curly Tail Grub and got back out to the lake. Within a few casts I caught my first largemouth bass. Ever since then… Fishing has become my passion.
Enjoy the links, photos and all the great people I have met through fishing!
