You know, I’ve never really left here I grew up in a small little community which for the listeners if you’re into walleye fishing, may be familiar with witches, Devils Lake, it’s 160,000 freshwater acre lake that’s sitting in the middle of the state that is probably one of the top five walleye fisheries in the whole US or North America even.” — Tanner Cherney, influencer marketing specialist at SPYPOINT Trail Cameras
