Babe Winkelman has spent over 30 years on television being recognized for his success in fishing and hunting on the shows “Good Fishing” and “Outdoor Secrets.” An avid hunter and fisherman, Babe takes pride in teaching America how to hunt and fish, and has done so since the 1980s.
Babe began hunting at 8 years old with his father and shot his first deer at the age of 12. Over the years he has won numerous trophies for hunting and is also known as a world-class fisherman to many.
Babe’s enthusiasm for the sport earned him a spot in the prestigious Sports Legends Hall of Fame by the Touchdown Club of Columbus, Ohio. Babe is the only outdoors figure to be honored by the Touchdown Club. He was also inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame in 1988 and the Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame in 2001.
Today, Babe is not only a world-class fisherman, but also a father, husband, sportsman, television personality and businessman. He has taken his dream of being self-employed in the outdoors industry and turned it into a reality.
