MEET BEN GARVER
I have been an avid Nebraska fisherman since I can remember. Many of my childhood memories include fishing and camping trips with my family. My love for fishing has grown over the years and expanded into walleye tournament fishing as well. I have had some great finishes in tournaments across the Midwest and will continue to fish tournaments for years to come. I fish lots of different waters every year, all the way from Northern Minnesota to Kansas and several waters in-between. Over the years I have learned many different tactics for catching fish, walleye in particular. Some of my favorite tactics for catching fish include trolling crank baits, pitching jigs, live bait rigging, vertical jigging, bottom bouncing spinners, open water trolling spinners, and many more. I have been teaching the fine points of these techniques at seminars I conduct at the Bass Pro Shops store in Council Bluffs, Iowa. I have been the walleye Pro Staffer for the Council Bluffs store since 2007 and really enjoy my time there helping customers learning the ins and out's of walleye fishing.

In 2014 I joined the Nitro Boats State Team Pro Staff. This has given me an opportunity to run the best walleye boat ever made, the Nitro ZV21. I'm also a member of the Mercury Marine Pro Team. My Nitro ZV21 is powered by a Mercury 350 HP Verado with a 15 HP kicker. I'm also on the Lowrance electronics Pro Staff and keep my boat rigged with their latest electronics to help put more and bigger fish in the boat.
