Nick Shafer

The Founder & Guide of Crappie Predator, Nick Shafer, established this fishing guiding service for Southern Illinois because he wanted a work life that resembled not only his hobby life, but his overall lifestyle.

Nick is a former U.S. Marine and has established an impressive welding career over the past few years. Currently, he has turned his attention to serving clients through Crappie Predator as a full-time aspiration because it is his true passion.

Nick also has a family of his own. He has been married for 9 years and he and his wife together have two children. Their oldest son also shares Nick's passion for not only fishing, but the outdoors in general and Nick has no problem passing on the business to their son if he wants to someday take on this venture. Nick and his wife just recently added to their family in 2009 a baby girl. And she can count on spending countless days on her daddy's boat even on the days that she does not want to.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
