Joel Nelson

Quick Bio

Currently Representing:

Angler Profile

An ice-fishing troubadour, Joel has been fishing the bulk of what the ice-belt has to offer for more than 20 years. Advanced degrees in the natural sciences, including fisheries and digital mapping technology allow him to both think like a fish and find them, providing the tools necessary to locate new bites on undiscovered bodies of water. Joel has been cutting against the grain since he used his first flasher at age-10, an open-water sonar system modified for ice-use. Since then, he‘s been a maverick amongst ice-heads, always looking for the next tactic or destination, while putting new spins on old techniques to catch more and bigger fish. A frequent contributor and Pro-Staff Director of In-Depth Outdoors, and now Ice Force Pro-staff, Joel can be found online or in episodes of In-Depth Outdoors Television.
