Jeremy has been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod and reel. He loves to catch anything that swims and tries to take full advantage of the best bite going. Given the time he loves going searching for new water off the beaten path. Whether it is for largemouth, smallmouth, muskies, cats, sturgeon, lake trout, whitefish or carp, anything is fair game.
