My name is Cooper Petersen and I am very proud to be a member of the Jackson Kayak Fishing Team. I am the 14 year old brother of Carter Petersen, fellow JK fishing team member. I share my brother’s passion for fishing and being on the water. We fish as a family and Jackson Kayak knows all too well that kayaking is a family activity. I grew up paddling the lakes and rivers of Wisconsin. I am also a veteran of several trips to Minnesota’s Boundary Waters.
When I was very young I was diagnosed with ADHD; my father recognized that during my first Boundary Waters trip I was exceptionally calm when I was paddling and fishing the lakes of northern Minnesota. To this day, being on the water is the best place for me to be. I just love it!
