What's the highlight of your fishing career so far?

One of my highlights was, that I was fortunate enough to meet Gary Roach and invite him to stay at my house during a PWT event. Not only to have one a fishing legends stay at your house, but then become friends with Mr. Walleye himself. It still feels like a dream!

I fish mainly on Ottertail County lakes in MN. Ottertail Lake is my main lake that I fish with my guide service www.bretsguideservice.com. Being committed to my guide service, I mostly fish local tournaments.

What is the best fishing tip or advice that you ever received?

Somewhere on the lake, the fish are biting! You need to find the fish that are active......

In what ways are you involved in the angling community?

During the winter months I'm a sixth grade teacher. We run a program through the school called the Minnaqua Program. Which is a curriculum designed by the MN DNR. I teach the curriculum to the students, which involves all aspect of lake ecosystems, fish identifications, watershed, etc... Then we take all our students who went through the training fishing! Great program to get the younger generation involved with angling!

Summer, I'm active helping out the AYA Event on Little Pine Lake.

Also a member of the Ottertail Fishing League.
