This journey into fishing began amidst the shores of White Bear Lake, where we were fortunate enough to grow up and call home. It was these formative years, a deep-seated passion for fishing took root, shaping his life in profound ways. A dedicated engineer by profession, it's no surprise that his love for problem-solving found its nexus in the complexities of fishing. Always the keen observer, he tirelessly dissected the nuances of the sport, constantly striving to uncover the secrets of what triggers a bite—when, where, and how. Now, Hudson, WI is home and again fortunate enough to be able to throw a rock and hit the St. Croix River, a new passion was born.

Driven by a relentless pursuit of innovation and a commitment to quality craftsmanship, MudPuppy Tackle Co. was born. With each meticulously crafted sturgeon ice fishing rig and meticulously engineered big game fishing rod, we bring together the best of tradition and technology to empower anglers of all levels to push the boundaries of their fishing prowess.
