As a Midwesterner, it's plain and simple to see the joys and relaxation in life. As a kid, my mom and dad would take me to a little lake in Northern Iowa camping to get away from the day to day activities of their work week and smell the fresh air. This is where I got my first taste of fishing. I was four years old the first time I can remember tying my first clinch knot. That led to stringing the hook with a fat juicy night crawler and throwing it out into the lake. Although my first fish, at that point, was a carp, the fight and adrenaline was enough to get me hooked on fishing!

Over twenty year's later, I find myself living in Minnesota with my wife working a great job and fishing as much as I can in the great fisheries the state has to offer. I call Mille Lacs my home lake, and frequent it's waters as much as I can searching for monster walleye and smallmouth. It hasn't disappointed yet! I also travel to many other lakes around the state in search of great walleye action throughout the year, open and hard water.

In 2013, I decided to go back to school for agriculture at Iowa State University, where I joined the fishing g team. I was fortunate enough to fish a couple FLW Collegiate Series bass tournaments, where I place 55th out of 150 teams in the Central Division at Table Rock Lake in Missouri. This isn't my only tournament experience over the years.

In 2006, I fished my first muskie tournament in Clear Lake, Iowa and placed 3rd with three fish on the day. In 2010, my partner and I fished our first walleye tournament in Storm Lake, Iowa and placed 5th (only 3 oz. separated 1st through 5th) and cashed our first check. In 2015 I fished the same muskie tournament in Clear Lake, Iowa and placed 5th with two fish and was published in Muskies Inc. Magazine for rounding out the top five out of 50 participants. That same summer, I participated in another FLW Collegiate Series tournament in Prairie du Chien, WI on the Mississippi River. We placed 45th out of 100 boats in the Central Division.

In 2017, I will be participating in many more tournaments than I have in the past, this being due to settling down to start my new chapter in life with my wife, who also like's to fish. I have been attending seminars this winter by Chase and Gary Parsons, Korey Sprengel , and my idol, Ted Takasaki, who I've had the pleasure and honor to become friends with over the last year and a half. Each seminar has given me new insight for walleye fishing to try this upcoming season and make me a more educated fisherman.

My dream since I was a child has been to make a living fishing, whether it is through tournament fishing or guiding, I will strive to make that dream come true! My mother always said, "If you put your mind to it, you can do it!" And "If at first you don't succeed, try and try again." I will forever hold these words true when, and after, my dream has been achieved! It's only looking forward from here!

Tight lines and fish on!
