Joe DeVera is a tournament ice fisherman from southeast Michigan.
     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.
     Teaming up with the late Bill Banghart in 2016, Joe started fishing tournaments on a national level, compiling several top ten finishes and finishing the season in the top 15 in Team of the Year points three years in a row on the now defunct NAIFC series.

     Now partnering with Israel Ferguson of Bronson MI, Joe and Izzy now mainly fish in state circuits and travel to major events throughout the ice belt.
