Kirt Hedquist

I grew up in Northern Minnesota and have been involved in the outdoors as long as I can remember. I am married and have 2 wonderful sons Mitch and Mack who I love to share the outdoors with. I am employed at the TRANE Company as Field Service Technician.

Occupation: HVAC Service 

Favorite fish: Walleye

Favorite fishing destination: Mississippi River

Favorite fishing techniques: Trolling and Live Bait Rigging

Career highlight: 2009 FLWL Champion

I have a passion for walleye fishing.  This passion grew into competitive walleye fishing.  In 2007 I started fishing the FLWL but the highlights of my tournament fishing career was in 2009 when I won the FLWL Championship and in 2012 won the 2012 Full Throttle Fishing Championship Walleye Division on Lake Minnetonka with my teammate and son Mack.  I fish Full Throttle Outdoors, AIM and the MWC. Along with tournament fishing I also enjoy introducing youth to the joys of fishing with NPAA youth fishing events.
