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 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!
I'm a 5-time Wisconsin State Bass fishing Champion- 3 time youth state champion in 2007, 2009, and 2013 and a 2 time back-to-back high school state champion from 2012-2013. I placed 3rd at the Youth National Tournament held in South Carolina in 2014. I am a member of the C@R Bass Club held in Watertown, Wisconsin, and I'm in my second year of fishing at the collegiate level at the University of Wisconsin Whitewater. I qualified for the Conference Championship tournament as a freshmen last year. Fishing is my passion and I look forward to continuing my journey through fishing college tournaments and club tournaments.
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!
