Wisconsin’s Marianne Huskey Makes Angling History

Professional walleye fisher, Marianne Huskey, first made history earlier this year by placing second in the AIM Pro Walleye Series on Lake Superior just off of Brimley, Michigan.  The placing made her the  highest placing female in the AIM professional walleye series tournament to date.
Marianne's year of accomplishment was far from over. As the pro walleye season ended, one last award would be awarded-Angler of the Year.  History was once again set when Marianne became the very first woman to ever win angler of the year in either the pro bass or walleye circuits.
Marianne sites her passion for fishing beginning when her grandfather took her fishing for perch on lake Michigan when she was just six years old.  Wetting that first line sparked Marianne's desire that finally cumulated in her becoming a professional angler.

In addition to winning Angler of the Year, Lund/Mercury Pro Marianne also won a $10,000.  prize provided by sponsor Lund Boats.   Topping off her extraordinary year of fishing Marianne plans to marry her best friend and traveling companion, Matt Pika.
Marianne is sponsored by Lund, Mercury, and Frabill.
Congratulations Marianne you are an inspiration!
