Matt is a writer and editor who would rather be out on the water than most anywhere else. Let's be honest, he writes and edits to fund his fishing habit. He blames his addiction on his dad, who kept taking him out perch fishing on Muskegon Lake in Michigan as a little boy. From there, it moved out onto Lake Michigan (aka "The Big Lake") for salmon and trout, and now Matt would rather spend most of his time out there. If he can find a way to be on or near water, he's going to do it. He also likes hiking, bowhunting, and small-game hunting. Heck, just send him outside, away from civilization, and life is good for Matt.
