“I’ve never golfed, for example; I’ve never water skied. All I did was fish, and I always just knew that’s what I love to do and all I ever wanted to do, and so I was always pretty lucky that way,” Jason Mitchell said in a recent article here on Northland Outdoors.
It is that passion that led him down a road (one that is underwater?) to the North Dakota Fishing Hall of Fame.
I asked Jason to come on this week’s show to talk about whether or not he ever envisioned a Hall of Fame induction while trolling along a weed edge on Devils Lake.
“No, it never even crossed my mind. I’ve never gone out fishing for any type of accolade, I just love to do it,” Mitchell says on this week’s Northland Outdoors Radio show, (find a station and time near you). “I’ve always loved fishing and I love what fishing can do for people. That’s why I’ve always tried to be helpful in some capacity to try to get people out to do it.”
“A lot of times people worry about the wrong things,” Mitchell said. He wants people just to get out and enjoy time on the water.
“If more people fished or hunted, the world would be a lot better place, and I truly believe that.” Truer words have not been spoken in my opinion.
We also asked him where his favorite place to fish has been and where he’d like to go in the future. We even find out what he’s seeing on his trail cameras!
