Fred Lederer PMTT Angler to speak at Musky Road Rules Event in Wilmington, OH

At the Wilmington, OH event we will have Fred Lederer speaking.  Fred has been an avid musky angler and tournament fisherman for many years.  At the seminar he will be speaking about how to become a more effective troller.  The main point will be knowing  where your baits are located in the trolling set and understanding what can achieve these depths.   Here is a short bio of Fred below. 


Business Name:

Excalibur Rodworks







Volunteering for a multitude of organizations such as the USSA, HOFNOD and others, I have conducted youth events to introduce and guide new anglers into the sport of fishing. Providing safe instruction, teaching conservation, angler responsibility, promoting a positive influence and instilling self-confidence into young anglers has always been held in high regard. I have been featured by several outdoors publications, radio shows, television shows and I am a regular contributor to my local newspaper’s fishing reports on muskie fishing.I have been a muskie addict since 1994 when it was suggested that I accompany some friends on a Canadian fishing trip for a week. That trip produced my first 50” muskie as my 2nd muskie ever and forever changed my view of fishing. I have served on the board of the prestigious Ohio Huskie Muskie Club, Inc. for over 25 years as a trustee and President of the organization for 9 years. This involves educating anglers on muskie fishing, conservation and assisting with Ohio’s State run muskie stocking program. In addition to muskie fishing locally in Ohio and Michigan waters, I can be found competing on the Professional Muskie Tournament Trail. My trolling techniques combined with understanding of marine electronics and seasonal muskie patterns make me a solid contender. I conduct seminars and shares his knowledge on muskie fishing in the Midwest.

As owner of Excalibur Rodworks I repair and build high end custom fishing rods for all species.

I have been married for over 25 years and have a son Jake and daughter Jenna who are both accomplished muskie anglers.

Recent Fishing Accomplishments include: 2016 PMTT World Championship Runner Up and 3 PMTT Top Ten Finishes
