Growing up in the world of sports fishing, James Lindner has filmed and fished from the Arctic Circle tundra to South American jungles and from the Atlantic to the Pacific coasts and every state in between. As a multi-species fisherman, James has few equals and his prowess in the world of musky fishing is legendary.
Recognized as one of the best directors and producers in the outdoor industry, James is the son and nephew—respectively of Ron and Al Lindner. James lives, eats, and sleeps fishing, leaving little time for non-fishing related activities.
In 2012 James Lindner was inducted into Minnesota Fishing Hall Of Fame.
In 2008, James was inducted into the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame as a Legendary Communicator for his outstanding achievement in the realm of sport fishing. In 2003, he was also honored as the Rapala Angler of the Year in appreciation of his professional manner, motivated by passion of fishing, to promote and expose others to the wide world of Rapala and recognizing his examples and limitless efforts that Lauri Rapala’s legacy continues.
Today James is a cohost of Lindner Angling Edge TV Show and is the Executive Director of Lindner Media Productions.
