“Getting up close and personal with big fish and game makes my heart race and truly tests a hunter’s skills,” says Mike. Mike Miller’s love for the outdoors, hunting and fishing, started at a young age. Like most hunters and anglers, conservation was a value instilled in him by his parents and mentors, and is still a big part of his passion. Growing up, Mike spent time in the woods with family and friends whenever he could. He lived near the Oshawa Creek and spent his summers at a camp on Sturgeon Lake in the Kawartha’s, so he had endless fishing opportunities. When school was done for the day and during summer holidays, there was a good chance Mike was on the water fishing or in the woods tracking wildlife trying to get a closer look.
At the age of 21, Mike won his first competitive bass fishing event. He has since become one of Canada’s most successful professional bass anglers, with 28 major tournament wins. He toured as a bass fishing pro and worked for various sponsors, which eventually led him into television production. In 2004, he became co-host and co-producer of the popular Fish’n Canada show, where he honed his on-air skills. In 2011, Mike joined the OFAH’s award winning Angler & Hunter Television as host and executive producer. He launched the show’s 19th season in January 2012, and the rest, as they say, is history!
