Matt Wilkie – Co-Founder, Overnight Program Coordinator
Matt Wilkie is a native Minnesotan who grew up with a love for the outdoors. While he always had a passion for open water fishing, ice fishing was something that he was not introduced to until he was a young adult. But boy was he hooked once that time came! Matt sees the inaccessibility of ice fishing for certain individuals as a missing opportunity, and he came up with the idea for the Big Fish and Fry program in order to bridge this gap.
“I certainly love catching big fish, but there is absolutely no better feeling than helping someone else bring in the big one!”
