Erika Blegen here, your tournament director. I’m a newbie, coming into my second year of being part of this awesome organization. It’s hard to believe a year ago I only knew just a few of you, and now I have countless friendships. A little about myself: I grew up in the Chisago Lakes area and have bounced around in central Minnesota for the last 4 years before purchasing a house in Pease, MN. I grew up fishing with my dad and grandpa, spending more time than I can remember on the water than anything else. I’m an electrician by trade, but I spend the most (an obsessive amount) of my time Muskie fishing, then pike, sturgeon, catfish, trout, walleye, crappies, bass, perch, carp, and sunfish. Have I mentioned I caught a shark too? I love taking people out fishing for new species, so please feel free to hit me up some time. Tight lines!
