If you spend 30+ years on television, you can’t fake enthusiasm. That’s why, through all these years, a natural bond has developed between Babe Winkelman and the people who watch him fish and hunt on TV. As the host of “Good Fishing” and “Outdoor Secrets,” Babe has succeeded in fulfilling his dream of being self-employed in the outdoors industry through a combination of hard work, good business instincts, and a gift for communicating his love of hunting and fishing.

Today, Babe Winkelman is many things: Husband, father, sportsman, television personality and businessman. He is an achiever, and has been recognized for his successes. In 1992, he was inducted into the prestigious Sports Legends Hall of Fame (alongside the world’s best athletes in baseball, football, boxing, etc.) by the Touchdown Club of Columbus, Ohio. Babe is the only outdoors figure to be so honored before or since. He was inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame in 1988; and the Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame in 2001. In 2007 he earned the “Excellence In Craft” award from the Outdoor Writers Association of America. Babe has spoken before American Presidents and has rubbed elbows with Hollywood stars.

About Babe Winkelman
Prior to building himself into a fishing and hunting icon, Babe Winkelman built buildings. He formed the Winkelman Building Corporation in 1969, and the company quickly grew. Babe’s passion for fishing and hunting grew too. He had a burning desire to find some way to make his outdoor interests his profession. In 1975, he made the leap by selling his Winkelman Building Corporation shares to chase his dream.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Babe takes great pride in teaching America to hunt and fish, and has done so since the 1980s. In addition to entertaining and educating his loyal fans every week on numerous cable/satellite and broadcast stations (including Versus and FSN), Babe has appeared on national talk shows and within the pages of People magazine, The Saturday Evening Post and other leading publications. He continues to write nationally-syndicated fishing, hunting and conservation columns read by millions.

According to hunter, angler and family man Babe Winkelman, “I’ve been blessed to make the outdoors my life for over 30 years. God willing, I’ll continue for many more.”

For the Winkelman family, preparing the wild harvest is a way of extending the hunting and fishing seasons. “This isn’t about gourmet cooking,” she says, “it’s about gourmet meals that anyone can make. My hope is that sportsmen and sportswomen across the country will enjoy these recipes as much as Babe and I have. It’s all about celebrating the outdoor experience.”

I was jig and jerkbait fishing with a friend in New York during late spring or early summer (early June, 2014). We were on a float trip on a small river, and we were fishing mostly by working husky jerks with a stop and go retrieve and by jigging 1/4 oz. black and chartreuse bucktail jigs. We ended up hooking into four walleye over 20″ (with two over 24″), some smallmouth bass, a jumbo yellow perch, and a pike before the day was over.
