Gaining interest with his local newspaper and public access channel, Joe has had a chance to promote the sport of ice fishing on a limited basis and is excited at the opportunities he gets to help grow the sport and the companies he represents.
Working with various companies and websites Joe has had the opportunity to write articles on a variety of ice fishing topics as well as several reviews.
Giving back through education is important to Joe, therefore he is dedicated to giving seminars and making videos aimed at teaching tips and tricks through social media, also donating his time with the NAIFC's Kids Camp as well as other youth oriented ice fishing events.
As a member of the J&E Ice Fishing team, Joe spent the 2015 season honing his skills as a tournament angler on a small local circuit where he and his partner compiled five top 5 finishes, including two 3rd place as well as “Big Gill” award.
