About Brian Robison 

Brian played football in the NFL for the Minnesota Vikings for 11 years. Football has always been the constant for him, but fishing has always been close by. Growing up fishing ponds, creeks and lakes from the bank was always enjoyable to him. Things changed drastically for him when he purchased his first bass boat in 2012. Since then he has become completely addicted to the sport of bass fishing.

Brian lives his life by what he calls the 4 F’s; Faith, Family, Football and Fishing. Now that he has retired from the game of football it has become about Faith, Family and Fishing. Fishing has long been a passion to him and some would even say an obsession. He looks forward to the opportunities to take his kids on the boat, compete in fishing tournaments and fish with friends. He has even started a foundation called “Reel ‘Em In” that is centered around fishing. As he moves forward from his life as an NFL athlete, the fishing industry is definitely where he wants to be.
