Ryan grew up fishing for fun at a very young age with his father and
grandfather. The target species didn't matter, he just loved being on the water with them. When he was in college he started to follow professional bass fishing and became hooked in a few short months. This where competitive fishing started for Ryan, across the Twin Cities metro area where he was attending college and on trips back to Central and Northern WI where he gre up - chasing Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass.
In early 2014, Ryan relocated to Northern Wisconsin from the
Twin Cities so he could start pursuing fishing at a higher level - and fish nearly everyday year round. Ryan continues to learn everyday, and uses every trip to the lake as an opportunity to become a better angler. He chases Bass in the Spring,
Summer and Fall, and avidly hunts Big Bluegills and Crappie in the
winter months through the ice.
