Captain
Dennis Ansell

Member since February 2016 Sturgeon Bay, United States
Background
I enjoy eating fish so I wanted to put food on the table. My father taught me how to fish with plastic worms and I became interested in tournament fishing. As I fished more tournaments for different species and became consistent at it, I wanted to be able to pass along what I learned to others. So I started guiding for fish, and I really enjoy teaching people how to catch fish on artificials as well as live bait.
Techniques
My preferred method is using artificials for panfish,walleye,largemouth and smallmouth bass and Northern pike.
