Member since June 2017 Fairview, United States
Background
I've been hooked since I was 3 years old. I grew up fishing the Great Lakes with my dad and grandfather. I've had the dream of becoming a charter captain since I was about 12 years old. Now I own and operate Old Timer Charters.
Techniques
Even though I spend the majority of my time trolling for walleye, steelhead, and lake trout, I still enjoy stream fishing and drift fishing.
