Alex and I have met some fantastic people in the professional fishing world. Here are a few links that we think you should check out. Mike Iaconelli and his wife Becky started an incredible charity called THE IKE FOUNDATION, which generates used fishing equipment from anglers and takes charitable donations to purchase rods and reels to distribute to inner-city children. They introduce them to the outdoors and give them a positive influence on life, keeping up out of violence and negativity. Small Craft Fisherman is a great read on a local angler chasing fish in the Great Lakes region. For the finest guide service in the country, contact Dale Stroschein and his crew at Wacky Walleye Guide Service in Door County WI for giant smallmouth bass and walleyes. Dale is a member of the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, he has a storied professional career as a walleye angler, is extremely knowledgeable in his profession, and owns Sand Bay Beach Resort with his wife near Sturgeon Bay with huge lodging discounts for his fishing clients. John and Jeanne Lindberg run a fantastic resort on Little Bay de Noc near Escanaba, MI. Excellent rates, clean cabins, a private dock, private boat ramp included, with the BEST smallmouth fishing I have ever found. They also have outstanding Northern Pike fishing and are well-known for their walleyes and yellow perch. For the most informative fishing shows of all-time, check out Ron, Al, and James Lindner's Angling Edge shows, DVDs, and online store for books, decals, and apparel. The Lindners are a family with high morals and deep faith in Christianity and always deliver fantastic tips with awesome underwater filming, as well as excellent life lessons at the closing of every show. All of them are very accomplished anglers with wins all the way to the top of professional levels.
