How long have you been fishing?
Since I was about 4 years old when my grandpa and my dad used to take me with them fishing for northern pike. My family has just always fished so I thought everyone’s did!
What inspired you to become a Lund Pro-Staff?
Lund’s have been a big part of my life. I have been to so many beautiful places and on so many adventures in a Lund that it feels like a best friend and this is where I am home.
Can you tell us the largest fish you have ever caught?
I have been pretty fortunate and have caught quite a variety of big fish from Tarpon in Florida to King Salmon in Alaska with many Walleyes over 28” in the Midwest.
Where do you mostly fish?
It used to be just Northern Minnesota but now we are on the road a lot from SD, ND, WI, MI and MN. My favorite place though will still always be Lake of the Woods.
