Doc is known for his knowledge and teaching of marine electronics. He found out early that understanding sonar and maps will catch more fish so he studied intensely and was rewarded with many major walleye tournament wins which include 2 National Walleye Championships wins. He is a member of the Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame. He has turned his fishing success into a teaching buisness which includes instructional DVDs, seminars, classes, Facebook, and Walleye Schools.
