Fishing Bio:

  1. What age did you fall in love with fishing? 
         I started fishing when I was big enough to hold a pole. My dad got me started.
  2. Do you have a favorite fishing memory? 
         Rice Lake, Canada… I caught so many blue gills during the week that my arms hurt. I think between me and my dad we brought home 800 bluegills for the week. That doesn’t count all the ones we threw back.
  3. What kind of fishing do you prefer?
         Pan fish of any kind. I enjoy bass fishing too. And I love chasing trout with a fly rod. I use the fly rod on all species when I can. I love fishing with a fly rod.
  4. What is your funniest fishing story?
         I was 16 year of age and fly fishing for bluegills with a neighbor girl in a small jonboat who was at the other end of the boat. I was lifting my line off the water to cast to another spot, when at the last second a small bluegill grabbed my fly and come flying out of the water and flew straight at my friend and hit her in the chest. She thought I did that on purpose and proceeded to grab seaweed and started trowing it at me. Never did convince her that it was an accident. We laughed about it later.
  5. How has the Twin Troller changed your fishing experience?
         It’s given me a chance to get into small water that my big boat will not do as easily. I like the ability to have some stealth when I move around and have the benefits of a kayak without the hassle of a kayak. Because of all the stuff on the TT. I can’t just lift it up and put it into my truck. I have to trailer it wherever I go. It’s the hardest trailer to back up I own. The short tongue and length of the trailer forces me to make micro adjustments when backing it up. I also have come to realize that for the most part you’re going to get wet when using this boat. Unless you have a dock to launch or load from, you’re going to get wet. I don’t have that issue with my big boat.. I like the twin troller for it’s intended purpose. As a 58 year old man I’m not flexible enough to be in a canoe or kayak and have fun fishing. The TT allows for an upright sitting position or I can stand too if I don’t have to move. I’ve had many hours with friends, spouse and solo and am happy to have in in my stable.
  6. If you could take one guest a long with you fishing, who would you choose and why?
         Hank Parker. Watching his tv shows as a kid and young adult taught me a lot of cool things to try. I like his attitude and he seems to be a genuinely great person to be around. Kevin Van Dam would be a good second. I’m a fellow Michigander and know his brother who runs a fishing/boating store in Kalamazoo Michigan.
  7. Who is your favorite fishing buddy?
         My wife, we share most everything together. 36 years and counting…
  8. Do you have any fishing superstitions?
         Nope. When I was a teen I used to have a lucky hunting vest that I wore almost overtime I went hunting. But soon grew out of that… literally. And that ended the tradition. LOL, however, I still have it hanging with my other hunting jackets and vests reminding me of the great times we had together. Some things are hard to discard.
