I am an avid outdoorsman with a fishing addiction. I have been fishing Lake Erie since the age of 2, and have become a passionate troller, hardcore jig fisherman, and persistent caster! I wanted to take my obsession and help others to enjoy fishing, and teach them the best techniques to be successful on Lake Erie.
