Since then, he’s become a professional walleye angler and fishing educator, and has fished the AIM Pro Walleye Series and the Professional Walleye Tour. He’s had three dozen Top 10 finishes, and has qualified for various championship tournaments including four times each for both the AIM Championship and the PWT Championship.
