Bill Schultz

Bill Schultz lives in New Berlin, WI. However, he spends a good deal of time in
his adopted hometown of Sturgeon Bay, WI chasing big water smallmouth
bass in this nationally recognized Mecca of Green Bay and Lake Michigan.
Since catching his first smallie in 1994, he has caught and released over
30,000.   Bill is a sought-after speaker at sports shows and fishing events in
Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, along with being a guest on a variety of
regional and national podcasts.  His sellout talks the past 13 years at mega-
show, Canoecopia in Madison, WI, have turned hundreds onto the
tremendous opportunities and excitement of kayak fishing for smallmouth
bass on lakes and rivers throughout Wisconsin. Bill is also a contributing
writer for several top web sites and magazines.  He has also written articles
for, or been featured in, On Wisconsin Outdoors, Kayak Angler Magazine,
Outdoor Life and Bassmasters Magazine.

After many years of fishing, Bill discovered kayak fishing in a big way 15 years
ago, and says, “I love the quiet, ability to fish waters it would be tough to
reach without a kayak and I enjoy the exercise aspects of kayak fishing”.
Sharing his passion for kayak fishing and chasing smallmouth bass has
become a passion for him. Along with the Jackson Kayak Pro Staff, Bill is on
the Pro Staffs for Aqua-Bound/Bending Branches Paddles, St. Croix Rods,
Malone Auto Racks, Acme Tackle/Kalin’s, Z-Man Fishing, Keitech USA, RAM
Mounts, Yar-Craft Boats and Mercury Marine. He also has sponsorships with
several additional fishing and outdoor companies.
