AS with most accomplished anglers Kevin started fishing at a very young age. Growing up summers were spent at the family cottage on the Townsend Flowage, fishing on the flowage was a major part of these summers. Fishing closer to home consisted of catching perch on Green Bay, northern pike on the Branch River and bass & panfish on small local lakes. His first trip to Vilas County was at the age of eight. Fishing for bass and walleye on Star & Escanaba Lakes with his Father, to this day Vilas County is still his favorite area to fish.
Fast forward through seventeen years of fishing and Kevin found himself fishing on the Fox River when he hooked into and landed the ‘accidental’ musky. The musky bug had struck and the next thirteen years would have Kevin honing his skills with countless hours on the water, reading anything musky related he could get his hands on and attending as many seminars as possible. Many of those hours on the water were spent pursuing the musky of Green Bay and the Fox River.
To further improve his fishing success Kevin has spent endless hours fishing with retired Vilas County Musky Guide Dick Bouchonville. Studying under a guide with 40 plus years’ experience not only taught Kevin the finer points of musky fishing but what it took to be a successful guide. After spending several seasons guiding inland Kevin successfully completed the necessary course work and testing to receive his Coast Guard Operators License allowing Kevin to guide on Green Bay and the Fox River.
Kevin is an active member of MUSKIE’S Inc and an Officer in the TitleTown – Packerland M.I. Chapter. Having numerous published articles Kevin was promoted to Field Editor with MUSKIE Magazine; The Official Publication of M.I. On top of his writing Kevin is also an active seminar speaker.
