    Favorite Bodies of Water:

    Finding active always seems easier than finicky fish. Find a good school and conquer, if they don't bite, don't wait too long - try your luck somewhere else and come back later.

    Favorite striker products?

    When it comes to Ice fishing I try to stay as mobile as possible so I heavily rely on my Climate suit and Defender gloves to keep me warm and safe!

    Expert Tip:

    When I was just starting to fish I would sit on a location and never move. I would good days and a lot of bad days. I quickly learned that I needed to stay mobile and move with the fish.

    Why Ice Fishing?

    After college I was looking for something to do during my free time. A close friend suggested that I take up fishing. It started with ice and quickly spread to open water, I just fell in love with every aspect of it. Spending time with friends, the challenge of finding fish, the every changing all just consumed my soul. When I'm on the ice, any problems or drama just melts away and life seems that much more precious.

    Striker Story:

    About 4 years ago I was fishing on 10 inches of ice when I went through a weak area of ice. After a few attempts I managed to get out of the water and had to walk soaking wet 2 miles to safety in -24F temps. I can honestly say that the biggest factor in surviving this ordeal was my Striker Ice Climate Suit!
