Mike Lewgood grew up in the small town of Monessen, just south of Pittsburgh, PA along the Monongahela River. He was introduced to the outdoors by his parents and uncle. Mike has been fishing ever since he was old enough to hold a fishing pole in his hand and hunting since the age of 12. He grew up hunting small game, turkey, and whitetail but more recently has also gotten into bear, dove, and goose hunting and also fur bearer hunting and trapping. In 2015 Mike completed the PA Triple Trophy, harvesting a black bear, whitetail buck, and turkey all in the same season. As much as Mike loves the outdoors, his family will always come first.
