Tom grew up in a small southern Minnesota farm town and was bitten by the fishing bug at a very early age. He got hooked on bass and fished my first tournament in 1980. Forty years later and he is still competing. He made the move to the Brainerd area in 1983 and started guiding for the famous Nisswa Guides League shortly after. HIs “recharged” desire for ice fishing is greatly due to the innovative products from Otter Outdoors. Tom is proud to represent the best in the business.
