The Great Lakes Fisherman's Digest Television Show and Travel Booth as well as the website are owned by John Bergsma out of Grand Rapids, MI. After an 18 year career as a professional Walleye Fisherman and a 4 year stint as CEO of a very large Northern Michigan Resort, John turned his attention to this current project.

"I saw a "huge hole" in affordable promotions that were both broad based yet regionally specific. It simply is not being addressed, so I used all I new about fishing, marketing, T.V, and my own experiences at Travel Shows and designed this program and product to fill this niche."—John Bergsma, Host of The Great Lakes Fisherman's Digest

The Great Lakes Fisherman's Digest Television show , travel booth and website will work together to fill a niche to educate, guide & promote the many beautiful destinations found throughout the Great Lakes Region.
