  Tournaments Fished: All SWT Events except for Saskatchewan Landing, Boundary Dam Opening Day Walleye Classic, Boundary Dam Bass Challenge.  
     
  First Tournament Fished: Rowan's Ravine 2004.  It was great to have guys from the SWAT program that we fished with the year before welcome us as competitors.  The SWAT program worked for us!     
     
  Favorite Lake: Boundary Dam Reservoir in Saskatchewan for some of Canada's best Bass fishing (from what I've experienced), Lake of the Woods in Western Ontario for great Smallmouth fishing and chances at multiple other species, Last Mountain Lake in Fall for big walleye.    
     
  Favorite Fishing Technique(s): Buzzbaits (topwater) for Largemouth Bass,  Spinner rigs and live bait rigging for Walleye.  
     
  Boat/Motor: 1993 Smoker Craft Pro Mag with Johnson 150 Fast Strike        
     
  Sponsors: Thanks to my family for allowing me to pursue my passion for fishing, National Battery for supplying me with Deka Marine Battery's, and Value Tire for supplying tires for my boat trailer.   
     
  Accomplishments: Winner's of 2007 Boundary Dam Opening Day Walleye Classic, 6 tournaments fished at Estevan, 6 finishes in the money at Estevan (3 walleye tournaments, 3 bass tournaments).  
     
  Comments: My tournament dreams started with thoughts about fishing the Kenora Bass International on Lake of the Woods.  I still hope to compete out there some day for bass, but walleye tournaments have "distracted" me at present due to their accessibility here in Saskatchewan. 

In the past 4 years my love for walleye fishing has grown and now rivals my love for bass fishing (but bass are still #1).  I enjoy competition and the learning curve on the SWT and hope to continue to improve.  It has been great to have a fishing partner that is ready to fish on a moments notice and shares the same views and passions I have for fishing and life (God #1, Family #2, Fishing/ Hunting #3).      
 
     
  Other: Other: I have to say how impressed I've been with many walleye trail members who have offered advice for fishing, friendly conversation at tournament events, and even offering us a truck to use when we had vehicle problems last year at Elbow during prefishing.  It can be an intimidating group of people to break into but several teams have gone beyond what was necessary to help us out in many different ways.  Thanks!
