Hi, I’m Catherine and fishing is in my blood. I grew up spending countless hours in the summer, and winter, on the water of Lake Superior. With over four decades of life under my belt, and nearly the same amount of time under a fishing hat, my vision is to share as much information about this sport as possible so it may be enjoyed by future generations. 

I am extremely fortunate to have been blessed with three sons who all love fishing as well. Some of our most treasured family memories come from those moments on the shore, and sometimes on the water, waiting for the “big one” to bite.

Generation after generation -- passing down an age-old tradition.

I’m Dustin but everyone around here calls me “Bookie.” I have that nickname because I graduated with my degree in Fish & Wildlife Management. The great outdoors has always been my passion, but there is just something special about what lurks beneath the waters.

My “book smarts” provide me with a more scientific viewpoint about fishing and water management. Whether we are talking about stocked ponds or great lake fishing, there is a lot going on under the surface!

My name is Ronald and I consider myself a fish wrangler.  I’ve been fishing for most of my life. My wife says it isn’t just a hobby, it’s an obsession. She just might be right!

I’m a tips and tricks kind of guy. Hey, there are all kinds of innovative products hitting the market, but sometimes you just need some of those tried and true fishing techniques.
