Wade Nichols has been an avid fisherman his entire life thanks in no small part to his grandfather, Dutch, and favorite cousin, David. He lives in Cleveland Ohio and fishes mainly in the natural inland lakes and man made reservoirs in Northeast and Central Ohio.
Wade has focused mainly on fishing largemouth bass from his 2000 Wilderness Systems Pungo for nearly 11 years now. His favorite bodies of water are the numerous electric only and 10hp or under lakes in the area and has intimate local knowledge of many of them. Twice Wade has earned Master Angler status with The Ohio Department of Natural Resources by registering four “Fish Ohio” catches of four different species within a one year period.
His major strengths include finesse worm and crankbait fishing techniques, and rigging of sit-inside kayaks. One of Wade’s favorite things to do is instruct others in the fundamentals used to ensure kayak fishing success and overall safety while on the water or in seminars. Wade also serves as Vice President for the newly formed Ohio Chapter of Heroes on the Water.
