Guest Profile

Michel Cardoso is our first guest from Sweeden. He and his professional fishing team, the South End Anglers, have racked up some amazing catches. But Michel’s rise to tournament angler was not a direct one, as he did not come from a family that fished. But after going with friends a time or two, he definitely got the fishing bug.
