Tom began his 33-year guiding career on Lake Geneva in Southern Wisconsin. Upon moving to Minnesota it didn’t take him long to establish one of the best multi-species guide services in the country. Tom pursues walleyes, giant crappies, northern pike, and bass with a passion that his clients endure and keep coming back for more. Tom guides on over 30 lakes in his area including the likes of Big Winnibigoshish, Leech, Cass, Bowstring, Sand, Pokegama, Upper Red Lake and many more. His knowledge and professionalism has attracted clients from every walk of life, from the average angler to professional athletes to heads of giant corporations.

Considered by his peers as one of the best jig fisherman around, Tom is one of the most sought after authorities within the fishing industry, not only for corporate sponsorships, but as a contributor to many publications across the U.S. and Canada.

In 2009 Tom was inducted into the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame as a Legendary Guide and was humbled and proud of his selection. When off the water and ice, Tom spends a very busy schedule writing articles, presenting seminars and making in-store appearances at various retailers.
