Hey all!! I have been fishing the Great Lakes since I was a kid, I grew up with my amazing yooper grandpa, we fished Bay de Noc and ice fished any little pond we came across in Michigan. I am a single mom to a six-year-old Casting Queen, we live on a private lake in northern Illinois now, and she is my hunting and fishing buddy! She can bait her hooks, and help field dress a dear, all while dressed as Elsa! To me, being a Casting Queen means representing female anglers in a positive, empowering way, that makes me proud to show my daughter what we do! In today’s world, females in any profession are often forced to look or act a certain way, so being part of this amazing fishing team means I can continue to build my career, show my daughter we CAN do it all, and feel proud of how I represent myself and other female anglers (and mamas!) like me!
