Matt grew up spending weekends with his family and friends up at their family cottage in Ontario Canada. His passion for the outdoors transferred to fishing, but his true love wasn’t found until he drilled his first hole through the ice. After that he was hooked! A good friend took him under his wing and taught him the finer details of the sport. As a result Matt loves to pass his passion forward to others via social media, bringing new to fishing people out on the water, teaching ice safety classes, and filming JTtv episodes.
