Pete Anderson:
Birth Date:
Home Town:
Deer River, MN
Fun Comments: I am originally from up North
(Deer River, MN) where there were literally
100’s of lakes in the area and you had the
choice to fish just about anywhere for
anything. It can get you spoiled in a way but I
do like competition and down here closer to
the cities, there is no shortage of that. When a
co-worker (Grant) mentioned the UPL to me I
was more than willing to be part of it.  I do
have some experience in tournament fishing,
but most if it has been open water with bass
tournaments out East when I was in the
Navy.  Ice fishing is something that I have
always enjoyed and I look forward to getting
out and fishing with the best. I currently reside
in Shakopee (since 1998) and work in
Environmental, Health and Safety for
CertainTeed Corporation.

Grant Birznieks:
Birth Date: June, 1979
Home Town: Detroit Lakes, MN
Fun Comments: Grant was born in Detroit
Lakes MN and has been fishing and hunting
since childhood. The ice fishing bug bit hard
during the winter of '09. He has since enjoyed
adding to his knowledge base from
experienced fisherman, and looks forward to
talking ice fishing with fellow league members.
Grant is employed as a Quality Manager at a
large manufacturing facility.
