I’m still married and have one daughter. I grew up on a lake and only fished bass until I was introduced the St. Croix River and walleye. These fish were hard to catch and people wanted them for dinner. Fishing was something I did on my off time, I grew up playing tennis 6 days a week and tournaments all over the place. I still to this day play in National tennis tournaments but around the age of 16 I became burnt out and I started fishing hardcore and refining my river skills on walleyes. Fishing team tournaments with my buddies was a ton a fun but always wanted to fish the big tournaments against the guys I watched on TV growing up. So I went all in and never looked back. I currently live in Gem Lake Minnesota and would have to say my home Lake is Mille Lacs Lake. My Angling Hero’s are Al and Ron Lindner.
