My name is Nick Scott, and I am a sophomore Business major at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville in Edwardsville, IL. I have been a competitive bass fisherman for five years and a tournament bass-angler for two years. I was the founder of the bass fishing team at Marshall High School. Fishing is truly a passion of mine, and I want to help the world to learn to fish and enjoy this beautiful hobby. This site is free of cost and hopes to be beneficial to those of you who are just trying to learn more about the sport we all know and love! Feel free to stop by and check out our articles. Hopefully ‘Midwest Fishing’ can help guide you on your journey to catching more and bigger fish. I will be posting as much as I can and sharing all of my fishing knowledge and continually learning more in order to teach you more. If you ever have any problems, suggestions, or questions, feel free to drop a comment on any of our posts, or you can head to the contact section and shoot us an e-mail as well.
