Joe has been focused on improving as an angler since he was a child. He began working at the local bait shop and running his guide service right out of high school as he prepared to compete at the tour level by the age of 24. Over the last 15 years, he has consistently found himself in the running for AOY titles in the FWL, AIM and NWT tours with several top finishes along the way. To this day, he continues to compete across the walleye belt and fulfills marketing, advertising and product development duties with several fishing/marine manufacturers. Joe enjoys time at home with his wife, Jamie and daughter, Abigail who enjoy the outdoors as much as he does.
