In his younger years, he would trout and salmon fish on Lake Michigan, traveled to Key West Florida in search in the big one in addition to fishing many great inland lakes in Illinois, Wisconsin and Canada. Most notoriously though, he enjoyed fishing on Augustine Lake. Jim brought home with him great fishing stories and many, many fish. Jim was a handy guy and enjoyed inventing things to make his life easier and spent hours “Jimmy Rigging” everything. He was also very talented at creating custom fishing lures.
