Favorite Fish: Smallmouth, Walleye
Jim became an avid outdoorsman at an early age. His fondest childhood memories revolve around hunting and fishing. Whether it was tagging along with his Dad to the deer stand or the early mornings they spent together chasing bass on a small lake near their home in Monticello MN.
During high school if Jim wasn’t in the classroom (and many times when he should have been) you would find him in a duck blind, deer stand or wading the banks of the Mississippi River looking for smallmouth bass.
After receiving a degree in Communications from the University of Northwestern Jim began his career in Outdoor Television. Over the coming years he found himself traveling the country filming / editing hunting and fishing shows. During that time he had the pleasure of working with many of the pioneers in the industry: Rob Schara, Tony Dean, Babe Winkelman and now the Lindner’s.
In 2015 Jim joined Lindner Media Productions as a producer/editor. If he is not in his office editing shows for Fishing Edge or Angling Buzz, you will probably find him wandering the woods in search of ruffed grouse or on one of the many Brainerd area lakes looking for whatever is willing to bite.
