I’ve studied fish since before catching my first one at 8 years old with my dad in Chicago along “the rocks”. During the last 30+ years since, I developed a special place in my heart for chasing and catching fish wherever they swim. I’m most well-known for Ice Fishing, especially for pan fish tournaments all over the world since ‘01. Having won a Gold Medal with the USA Iceteam in ’10 at the World Ice Fishing Championships (WIFC) and two Blue Diamond rings in the North American Ice Fishing Championships (NAIFC). The first time in ’05 and again in ’13. During this time people have been drawn to me and asked for my support. Enough people have approached me that I decided to hang up the tournament gloves and dedicate a large portion of my life to helping millions of anglers to shorten the learning curve to catching more quality fish. I currently only guide on Ice in Northeast Illinois and Southeast Wisconsin… but also through making regular contributions since 2005 on TV, Radio, magazines like BASS – In-Fisherman – Chicago magazine – Outdoor Canada – and countless other outlets as well as appearances and Seminar Speaking from NY to the Dakota’s and everywhere in between.
