I'm a tournament angler in the Canadian Bass Angler Federation (CBAF) and part of the Golden Horseshoe Bass Anglers Club. When not competing throughout Ontario, I spend much of the fishing season on Belwood Lake, Ontario, where I have a seasonal RV and spend as much time on the water as possible with my kids. I typically target smallmouth bass and walleye on Belwood Lake but will also target pike occasionally.
In the winter, I like to spend as much time as possible in Orlando, Florida, and love to target bass on Lake Tohopekaliga, aka Lake Toho.
I am currently a member of the Denali Rods, Anglers Choice Baits, Outdoor Canada Magazine, UFINDFISH Mobile and Woodoo Custom Jersey's Pro Staff.
I am a regular contributor to WFN, Canadian Sportfishing and am extremely active in promoting fishing on social media outlets such as Twitter at @kentruffen.
I like to spend my spare time with my 4 amazing children.
