    ​I started fishing on the end of my grandmas dock 26 years ago for panfish and bass. Since that time my

    love for the sport of fishing has only grown more.

    I am always learning more about fish movements and locations through the different seasons. Which push me to try and learn different techniques and presentations using different gear at times. From trolling walleye spinning rigs to casting top water frogs for bass.

    I really enjoy being a multi-species angler and hope to get the opportunity to catch every freshwater fish. I have a great start on that by catching walleye, northern pike, crappie, panfish, bass, lake trout and rainbow trout, and catfish.

    I also ice fish up here in Minnesota, and looking to do some more saltwater fishing when i get the opportunities to.

    So, what do I need from you? Be honest with me about what you are looking for, your timeline, your budget, etc. I'm a conventional fishing expert, not a sales guy! I know this market well, and will always keep your targeted species in mind, as well as your wallet! I'm always happy to find something cheaper, a different color, or put things on hold for a while if that's better for you!

    New to the sport and don't exactly know what to look for? Tell me that! Everyone was once a beginner. I love helping new anglers get their first setup so they can have the experience of their dreams. I'm here to be a guide in helping you find your ideal setup; I'm not here to sell you something that won't work for you.Just keep me in the loop!

    Great! Once we established what I was fishing for we moved on from there to picking price range, from there on it was fairly easy I had great help getting the right rod for me along with a reel. I even managed to get a good deal on some fishing line. I had an overall great experience and hope everyone else can agree. Thank you Nathan Brateng for all your help!

    I was looking for Ice fishing gear for my son in Alaska . Having absolutely no knowledge of the sport myself Nathan was very knowledgeable and great at explaining pros and cons of the various price point products available . I ended up purchasing a rod , striker Ice climate Jacket and a men’s strike master bib .
