My mom thinks I am part fish. Even as a baby, I always wanted to be in the water. I learned to paddle, fish and swim very young as we live near Lake Wisconsin and have a cabin on the Peshtigo River in Marinette County Wisconsin. The minute anyone says, “What do you want to do?” I tell them I want to go fishing. That’s what I always say. I have the best tackle box in the world. I love sorting and organizing my lures in the off season…(because I live in Wisconsin, the off season is long) and on the days when I’m out fishing, even if I don’t get a nibble, it’s a great day.
I asked Santa for a fishing kayak for the past two year, and he fell through up until I met the people at Jackson Kayak. They are people who know what I know…that the best days, are the days on the water with my fishing pole and my boat.
I have two older sisters and an older brother. We spend our summers playing on the lakes around Wisconsin. My dad loves to paddle as well, and my mom loves to read books while sitting on the beach watching us.
