Nicole grew up on a farm in Central Minnesota where her life revolved around the outdoors. She was fishing by the age of 6 and has been hooked ever since. After high school, she received her B.S. in Atmospheric Science and continued with master coursework in Natural Resource Management, where she found her, true passion lies - in her love for the outdoors. She has since made a living influencing for companies, mastering digital media, and running her websites nicolestoneoutdoors.com and nicolestone.com. Her favorite fish to target is the walleye but spends plenty of time chasing panfish, bass, and pike across the Midwest and Canada.
