Erik Lennartz

Member since December 2020 Delavan, United States
Background
My fishing interest developed at a very early age. I began fishing for Bluegills from shore in neighborhood ponds near my childhood home, I was intrigued by the possibilities. Long before I could legally drive a car I saved up my own money, completed boaters safety, and purchased my own small aluminum boat. My first accidental Musky catch on my home waters of Pewaukee Lake sparked a new level of interest. I realized that fishing was much more than a weekend hobby for me. I spent countless hours on the water developing new techniques and learning new patterns for all the gamefish that swam in my local waters. As I continued to grow I discovered that I received an even greater joy helping others accomplish their angling goals, than I did my own.
Techniques
My techniques vary greatly depending on the targeted species, time of year, and goal in mind. Casting, trolling, and live-bait methods are all used at various times throughout the year. Each tactic also offers numerous possibilities, there are literally hundreds of effective methods that can be taught and used to put fish in the boat. What we do will be based on your specific trip.
