Despite the second Polar Vortex we faced in Minnesota two weeks ago and a substantial snow event, the Minneapolis Boat Show went on and people came out, some were just out to do something other than stay in their homes, but many attended with a purpose.
I love to spend time on the water—or in the woods for that matter—with those that mean the most to me. I have some awesome fishing and hunting buddies, but that even pales in comparison to the time I get to spend with my family. I’m a proud daddy of a 6-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl—but my wife is the rock star!

My name is Christina Weber most folks call me Red or Redfish - which translates into RedFeesh. Not for my strong redfish catching abilities, but for my red hair – lame I know, but I love it! I’m just a gal born and raised in South Florida in the town of Wellington.
I am a full time professional angler that wears many hats. Guiding full time on Lake Erie after being mentored by legends such as Jim Fofrich and Gary Roach as a youngster. They helped give me not only the fishing skills, but business know-how in order to pursue this line of work.
The common misconception about my career path is that I’m a fisherman who likes to write. Actually, a writer who likes to fish is a better fit. I’m a career communicator and sport fishing is my primary subject area because fooling things with fins has long been a personal passion of mine. In truth, I spend much more time in front of a laptop or behind a camera than I do casting and reeling because, for me, the work comes first.
As we enter the second week of February with yet another round of frigid temperatures, my brain is constantly looking forward to the month of March. For anglers here in Minnesota, this is the month that signifies sport shows, melting snow and the countdown to spring is dwindling.
Meet North American Fishing Club Life Member Jared Hunter. Jared, especially enjoys fishing for smallies and spends 75 days or more on the water each year.
Even with ice fishing in full swing, I’d be lying if I said my mind wasn’t still consumed with a hot summer bite. Sometimes the best way to beat a long winter is to organize tackle!
Minnesota brewery, Lakemaid Beer considered aerial delivery after they launched their new Frosty Winter Lager. Through the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), or drones, delivering cases of beer to anglers on Lake Mille Lacs may have been breaking “new ground.”
