Captain Jay Anglin, LaPorte, Indiana

Jay has immersed myself into the outdoor lifestyle for over 30 years. At any given time he may be guiding anglers or hunters, or spending his own time in the field with a good dog, friends and family. The Anglin family knows how to make a living in the outdoors – they eat it up.

“My friend Mike Batcke, has been doing the same thing and he can add building bad ass drift boats to his list of credentials. Mike and crew are making real boats…not cookie cutter junk. It’s as close to full blown custom work you’ll ever get in a driftboat and since most of us haven’t hit the lottery yet, it’s a helluva lot cheaper to get your money’s worth and have Stealthcraft build a perfect drift boat for you. Why pay the “big boys” for an inferior product – all you have to do is row one for ten minutes and you’ll know what your next boat is going to be…a Stealthcraft.”

Jay Anglin has been an avid outdoorsman his entire life. He is equally capable in the field with any type of fishing rod, shotgun, rifle or bow. A native of Wabash, Indiana, he spent his youth along the banks of the Wabash River. After his family moved to the shore of Lake Tippecanoe in Northern Indiana his fishing addiction was easier to deal with, out the back door and on other area lakes including Wawasee, The Barbee Chain,  and Webster among others.  He has been fly fishing and tying flies for 30 years. He is well versed in all aspects of fly fishing and conventional tackle techniques and can found on the water year round fishing local water for trout, steelhead, salmon, bass, musky and catfish as an angler and as a guide for his company Anglin Outdoors. He holds a biology degree from Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan. His scientific approach to guiding is built upon his lifelong love for nature and his experience in the field.  Jay has fished all over North and Central America and guides anglers on the rivers and lakes of Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan.  Jay writes a weekly column for the the La Porte Herald Argus called “Jay Anglin Outdoors” and is the chairman of the Kankakee Valley Chapter of Ducks Unlimited. He lives in LaPorte, Indiana with his wife Angie, their five children Lauren, Mitch, RJ, Elizabeth, Susan and his Black Lab “Deuce”.

Jay Anglin owns Anglin Outdoors based in LaPorte, Indiana. He and his wife Angie run ragged taking care of five kids and managing a 220 acre property outside of town that just so happens to have the bass paradise Cranberry Lake smack dab in the middle. When Jay isn’t holding a fishing rod or a gun, he is growing big bass, driving a tractor, feeding cows and writing his weekly outdoor column for the LaPorte Herald Argus.
