JOE HENRY

As a fishing guide, licensed charter captain, and tournament angler, Joe Henry has made fishing a part of his everyday life.  He has experienced many successes throughout the years with some tough days sprinkled in as well.  It is learning from both, Joe believes, that helps make an angler more effective and versatile.  
Joe is an award-winning outdoor communicator, sharing fishing techniques, strategies and philosophies with thousands through seminars, tv shows, videos and articles across the U.S.   
Professionally, Joe has enjoyed many leadership positions and serves on a variety of boards.  His professional background combined with his many fishing credentials led him to his current role, Executive Director of Lake of the Woods Tourism.
Joe works closely with 60 lodging facilities, area guides, and a variety of stakeholders.  He orchestrates the strategy and execution of the marketing, promotions, events, ad buys and social media for Lake of the Woods Tourism.
