Hometown: Northern WI & U.P. of MI

How long have you been fishing?

Since I was in diapers...I remember hiding under the bench seat of our old Lund when my dad or brother would land a large pike or muskie.

What inspired you to become a Lund Pro-Staff?

Growing up in a fishing & resort family, I spent a lot of time in Lund boats and guided out of them for many years. When I had the opportunity to become a Pro-Staff member of the Lund team, I was truely honored.

Can you tell us the largest fish you have ever caught?

A 66 inch Sturgeon on 6 lb mono in heavy current. It took 1 hour & 40 minutes to land without a net.

Where are you from?

I am a 4th generation, multi-specie guide that grew up in northern WI & U.P. of MI. Now live near Cook, MN.

Where do you mostly fish and what tournaments can we see you in this season?

I do most of my fishing on Lake Vermilion, the Vermilion River and many nearby smaller lakes. I may fish some local tournaments if my guiding & promotion schedule allows.

What is the best fishing tip that you ever received?

"Don't fish memories" and "It's the small adjustments you make that will make your day more productive on the water".

In what ways are you involved in the angling community?

In addition to working as a full-time guide, seminar speaker & promotor with my sponsors, I participate in several youth fishing events each season including: Take A Kid Fishing, Youth Muskie Challenge, Teen Challenge, etc. I am also on the Board of Directors for the Sportsman's Club of Lake Vermilion, which is over 2,000 members strong and I belong to several other angling organizations.

Pick five words to describe yourself.

Hard-working, laid-back, honest, adventurous, integrity.

What is the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever bought?

A Horse

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

"Be yourself & have courage - things in life always have a way of working themselves out."

What trait do you admire in people?

Honesty, Hard-working and a Good Sense of Humor.

What was the best year of your life?

1999 - When I met my wife, Holly. I was her fishing guide and we met in my Lund. One year later, while we were fishing, I tied her engagment ring on a line and asked her if it would catch anything. We got engaged in my Lund and also got married on the water. The rest is history in the making...

What’s your worst habit?


What’s your favorite model of Lund to fish out? Why?

This is a tough one...I've guided out of Rebels, Alaskans, Tyees, Explorers and Pro-V's. All of the Lunds are built for fishermen/women and have awesome, smooth & dry rides. There is a lot of storage and features in all of the models - depending on your needs. My clients always enjoy the ultimate fishing experience that Lund has to offer.

Anything else you would like to say to our entire staff at Lund Boats?

"WOW" - I truly mean this. From the office team, the design team, the marketing team, to the team in the factory, to the boat dealers...It's truly a pleasure to be part of such a class act! You always listen and take note of our input. You strive to be the best and set the bar very high.
