I have been fishing all of my life. I started on Mille Lacs fishing walleyes, then moved onto Minnetonka to fish for bass. Today, I am a licensed fishing guide in Northwest Wisconsin. I love fishing on open water for bass and muskies and ice fishing for whatever bites. In the past few years, I have become part of Pro Tour Baits, St. Croix rods, Uncle Josh, and Northland fishing tackle pro staffs, and hopefully the future will bring more. Good Fishing and I hope to see you on the water.

I'm from beautiful Rice Lake, in northwest WI. I'm married with three beautiful daughters and three goofy dogs. I've been fishing my whole life and for the last few years started fishing competitively with great success. I fish a few different series, including UMBCS, Thursday Night Bass League, and the Major League Series and in 2018 the CWBA and the Frankie's Marine Pro-Team Tournament. I plan to continue to grow my fishing portfolio and with Pro Tour Baits behind me I can guarantee great success to come! Thank you to Pro Tour Baits for everything they do and I'm so blessed to be a part of this growing company.
I am from Shirland, IL. I like to speak about the product/products that I use on a regular basis and demonstrate them as well. I have a wide variety of knowledge and always researching and reading about new products and techniques. I have been fishing since I could walk. My fiancé and I have 2 daughters that are 13 and 8 who also love to be on the water and fish. I have my own guide service that I not only guide, but teach and show the person/people with me how to fish and answer any of their questions. I also love to teach children how to fish and what set-ups work for the different species of fish. I began fishing local tournaments after I returned from the service. I was a director for NBAA for 7 years and fished their tournaments for 10 years. I also have fished in Anglers Choice, NBT, WABTA and many other open tournaments. I qualified and went to many Classics and finished well in them all. Currently my partner and I are in the top 20 in the WABTA series. For the last 2 years I have participated in Take A Vet Fishing and have had many of the vets keep in contact with me. This year I have helped with a local High School fishing team with weigh-ins and teaching them some new techniques with the equipment that I currently use.
I have been a die-hard lover of the outdoors since I can remember. With fishing always being the highest on my list. I have always had an extreme focus and drive for any goals and dreams I have. Mine dream being: to fish the Elite Series as a full time professional angler. While 2017 was my rookie season as far as Bass Nation Club Tournamtns go, I was able to Qualify for the MN Bass nation TOC. I finished in 5th place after day one, and ended up 14th for the tournament. With over 13 tournaments on the calendar this year including the NEW Bass nation team trail, My club tournaments, the 2018 Bass Nation TOC, both Classic Bass opens, the Denny’s Super 30 in September, and a super cool new circuit idea that my club along with Seth Feider and other MN bass anglers are working on, I am hoping to make a big splash this year!
My love of fishing started really early as with most people it does. But, it never really got serious until I bought my own boat out of High School. Besides the basics, everything I know about bass fishing and tournaments has been mainly self-taught. In 2015, I started competing in tournaments with Polk County Bassers (which went pretty well) with my first ever tournament being a 2nd place finish. My 2016 year went really well considering I was forced to be a non boater for the year (due to my motor being out of comission). I ended up learning more than i could have ever imagined. Also during 2016 I took a big leap into WI B.A.S.S Nation State Tournament which was a great experience and hope for many more.
I was introduced to fishing at a young age by my father. He taught me everything from tying my first lure on to helping me catch my first bass. Fishing was only a hobby for me until I was asked by a friend to be his partner in a bass tournament. I was 17 years old and we took first place that day. It changed everything and I was hooked. I learned that competitive bass fishing is more than just throwing a line in the water and hoping for the best. You need strategy, quick decision making, using the right tool for the right job, and being able to adapt to any circumstances. I have now been competitive bass fishing since 2010, I jumped on board with Pro Tour Baits in 2014 and got my first bass boat in 2015. I still have a lot to learn and many goals to achieve in order to reach the professional level of competitive bass fishing. I give a huge thank you to Pro Tour Baits for giving me the opportunity to work with them and helping me reach those goals!
As a professional angler, I need soft plastic baits that are dependable and that work. Every Pro Tour Baits bait I have used so far has exceeded my expectations. I am happy to be on their pro staff! I would highly suggest ordering their baits and try them for yourself!
