Background
Kent has been fishing Lake Superior and the surrounding area since 2002. He has worked for years as a first mate for some of the most respected captains in the area. He got his captains license and started FishNorthMN with Captain Jordan Korzenowski in 2016. Kent is very passionate about learning new techniques and spots to become the most efficient and productive captain possible.
