In 2016 I found myself finally accomplishing my dream and getting into the fishing industry. I finally got my dream job, of taking people out on their own personal fishing guides. Being a rookie in the beginning, I would find myself coming in at night with unsuccessful hauls of fish. I thought to myself if this was really the profession for me. Every time I had those thoughts, and every time I had an unsuccessful day, I taught myself to grow from those mistakes, and never gave up. Fast forward to the next season, I found myself being much more successful. There was nothing better than seeing a guest with a grin wrapped from ear to ear because of the fish they had in the boat. Guests seemed to enjoy fishing with me. I started becoming the talk around the lodge. Not only for my guiding, but for my customer service in general. If I were to give up my first year, when I felt I just wasnít as good as everybody else, I would have never gotten where I am today, and Iím thankful for that. Since then, I have parted ways with that outfitter.



    My name is Spencer Smith, Iím 19 years old and currently reside in Sault Ste Marie, Michigan. Growing up in a state touching four of the five great lakes, I can confidently state that boating, fishing, and water sports in general have been a big part of my life since the very beginning.







    Fishing and the outdoors has always been my first love, and ever since its started, its never left. It all started years ago, when my dad would take me fishing, and I wouldnít be able to sleep at night because of the excitement swarming inside of me. At that time, fishing was just a gift that I would enjoy on occasions, but nothing I really had any control over.

    Fast forward about eight years, and I would find myself sitting in my room staying up until three in the morning, watching countless Youtube videos of people fishing. This did two things to me. One, its taught me so much about the sport, and the business that you could get into. Two, it gave me the motivation to get back out there, and catch some fish, whether I knew what I was doing or not. As I pushed myself harder and harder everyday to learn the sport of fishing, I found myself catching more and more fish. More importantly, I found myself learning more and more about the sport itself. When I found myself fishing six out of seven days of the week, is when I knew I was hooked.






























    I am currently looking for an opportunity to continue my expertise in fishing, while working with other people in remote settings, and provide first class customer service to people, to spread the love and excitement for the sport of fishing.
