Rainy Lake Angling

Growing up, my family would come up to Rainy Lake a couple times each summer to visit our grandparents. By the age of 6 I was going fishing with my Dad and Grandpa - I've been hooked ever since! I grew up in Green Bay, WI, played JR. hockey in Bismarck ND and college hockey at St. Norbert. After graduating, I moved to I'falls and worked the docks at Thunderbird Lodge. I got my captains license in 2017 and have been guiding ever since. Being a fishing guide on Rainy Lake has always been a dream of mine, the beautiful scenery and smiling clients never gets old!
