Humbled beyond words to be honored in this way.  I have spent over 30 years sharing my passion of fishing with others while admiring the exceptional work of Minnesota Fishing Legends honored in the Fishing Hall of Fame.  To have my name listed amongst them is truly surreal.   

I would like to express my most sincere gratitude for those of you who have guided me thru my career and ultimately bestow me with this honor.  Thank you for this uniquely special honor.  

And to think I get to share the induction day with special friends who are being recognized for their contributions to the sport of fishing makes this even more awesome.  Congrats to my friends Steve Pennaz — Lake Commandos TV, Tim Lesmeister – Writer, Editor Media guru, Babe Winkelman Productions—Like Babe’s company needs an intro and Kluge Manufacturing of which none of us could have discovered ice fishing without their innovations.  

YOUR INVITED :  The induction, assuming you have never attended, is a really fun event where you meet, greet and rub shoulders with Minnesota’s fishing royalty.  Set as semi-casual coffee and breakfast social event, it provides one-on-one time with the movers and shakers within the industry. I encourage you to come, the stories told by inductees is well worth your time and token donation.  Please join me:
