Weeping Water, Nebraska
How did you first get into fishing?
My family is fishing/outdoors oriented. We would fish in family walleye tournaments and spend the summer camping and fishing.
What’s your earliest fishing memory?
I was just a few years old, fishing on the boundary waters for tullibee with my grandpa and brother with mayflies.
What are your fishing specialties?
Musky, bass, pike, redfish, ice fishing, and fly fishing.
Describe what your ideal day of fishing would look like:
My ideal day would start at about 6 a.m. in early February with light snow and air so cold it pierces your lungs. I’d be on one of my favorite rivers out east, throwing big baits for big wintering musky. Sun up to sun down.
What made you want to go into competitive fishing?
A few things. I’ve always had the competitive appetite. I found it was very difficult to be taken seriously in this industry. I wanted to prove that I belong here.
Do you see yourself as a role model in the sport?
I’ve never thought of myself in that way, until my recent win on Kentucky Lake when I had women from all over the country reaching out saying they were inspired to get into the sport. That was a pivotal moment for me.
What do you love to do outside of fishing?
Hunting, writing, camping, traveling, rock climbing, and going to live music in small venues no ones ever heard of.
