Jeff Nedwick is a freelance writer and life-long resident of Michigan. He has published several articles for the Lapeer County Press and the Michigan Outdoor News. Living in Michigan is a blessing for anyone who has a passion for the outdoors and Jeff has made the most of this opportunity. He was active in the burgeoning bass tournament scene of the 1970s and was a member and officer in several local bass fishing organizations. Although no longer an avid tournament fisherman, the techniques and knowledge acquired in this highly competitive sport proved invaluable as his interests have expanded to include nearly all freshwater species that swim in Michigan’s lakes and streams. Jeff and his German short-haired pointer Sadie also enjoy waterfowl and upland game hunting. Springtime turkey hunting, bird watching, photography, Great Lakes ship-watching and camping also compete for an increasingly small share of his free time.
