Ben grew up in eastern Iowa on the Mississippi and fished throughout his teens. The ice fishing bug bit him hard in college and his success increased with each passing year. Ben typically targets crappies and bluegills but will occasionally hunt down catfish or bass through the ice as well. You can find him fishing all types of water around central Iowa with whoever he can fool into tagging along.
Brett’s ice fishing career started as a young man on Lake Darling — armed with a pair of Schooley ice rods, a handful of jigs, wax worms, and a hand auger, his fascination with ice fishing was born. That was 15 years ago, and you can still find him using the same essential tactics to catch some of his favorite fish (bluegill, bass, and catfish). Brett can be found on ice around the Des Moines metro area.
