Professional Angler, National Park Explorer, Youth Leader

Grae is a professional angler from Pennsylvania on the MLF Invitationals, fishing his seventh season in 2023. He fished competitively at Penn State and after college went on to continue to pursue his fishing passion, working his way up through grass roots tournaments to the semi-professional level and finally qualifying for the Pro Circuit in 2016. Fishing is his primary passion, but Grae also has a strong commitment to environmental conservation. He graduated from Penn State with a B.S. in Environmental Resource Management and is an active leader in the Mid-Atlantic Youth Anglers organization out of Philadelphia. In that position, he’s able to encourage the youth to have an appreciation and respect for the outdoors through fishing. During the offseason Grae and his wife, Jessica, love traveling to national parks and so far have been to 22 with many more planned in the next few years.

"I love after a long day on the water kicking back in my RoadTrip Rocker to regroup and prepare for my next day of competition."
