Meet The Angler: Josh Blosser

June 25, 2021 7:32 pm

Josh Blosser is originally from the Chicago-area, but now calls the Lodi/Poynette area home.

An avid tournament angler for over 10 years, he has a lot of tournament accolades including five top 10 finishes in AIM events and most recently taking 2nd place in the 2020 AIM national shootout held on Lake Mille Lacs. For those of you that have been following long with the 2021 PWS season, you know Josh also just won the PWS event on Lake Mille Lacs as well.

Despite Josh’s success on Lake Mille Lacs, Josh says that his favorite body of water to fish is Leech Lake. Josh and his brother Robert, also a professional walleye fisherman and fellow PWS angler, enjoy fishing new bodies of water so they have fished various Minnesota AIM events. Josh says that growing up he spent a lot of time fishing Lake Winnebago and Green Bay, so he is no stranger to fishing large bodies of water for walleye.

Josh is excited about the PWS season and talks about the time disparity in the PWS events which are 5 hours of fishing time versus team events which are generally 8 hours. Josh says that he is more of a power fisherman and that he feels that this could be an advantage for him. He enjoys fishing new bodies of water and learning how each body of water fishes. He says that he is most excited about the Stump Lake event due to him never being there and the excitement of fishing new water. 

When Josh isn’t fishing, he is spending time with his wife and daughter. He is also an avid hunter in the fall. He has done trips out west with his brothers for various animals. Josh also enjoys bow fishing when he’s not walleye fishing.
