County Pro: Nick Godwin

Profile Name: smokepole

Nick has been an avid fisherman for over 40 years. Growing up in central Mi he fished for bass, pike, panfish, stream trout and carp in any body of water he could find. After high school Nick moved to the upper peninsula for a while and spent quite a bit of time exploring the eastern end. After moving back to central Mi in the late 80's and staying for almost another 20 years Nick moved downstate to Ionia county. He lived in Lyons for a few years, then moved west to Lowell in Kent county where he currently resides. Nick has spent the past 15 years fishing the Grand River from Webber Dam down to Grand rapids and almost every lake in Ionia, Kent and Montcalm counties that are open to the public as well as a few private. He's also spent quite a bit of time exploring some of the tributaries of the Grand River for trout. In 2013 Nick became a licensed fishing guide and started A Grand Addiction Guide Service.
