“I have fished numerous waters across the country and Canada for a number of different fish species, but my favorite fish is the mighty muskellunge. I am also passionate about smallmouth bass and walleyes and sauger.  In the winter months, I am typically found on the ice, chasing everything from crappie to walleyes.  Frabill’s outstanding product lines fit every need I have as a professional angler, and the quality and design of these products are second to none.  I am a professional musky guide and avid musky tournament angler (Professional Musky Tournament Trail) and I am originally from Wisconsin.  I am the Store Manager of Gander Mountain located in Baxter, Minnesota.  I write articles for Musky Hunter Magazine, Muskies, Inc Magazine and Ohio Outdoor News each year.  I give numerous musky fishing and ice fishing seminars at sport shows, Gander Mountain retail locations, and fishing club meetings throughout the Upper Midwest in Minneapolis, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus, Ohio and other locations.  I have been on the Frabill Pro Staff since 1998."  -Tom Dietz
