Babe Winkleman
If you spend 30+ years on television, you can’t fake enthusiasm. That’s why, through all these years, a natural bond has developed between Babe Winkelman and the people who watch him fish and hunt on TV. As the host of “Good Fishing” and “Outdoor Secrets,” Babe has succeeded in fulfilling his dream of being self-employed in the outdoors industry through a combination of hard work, good business instincts, and a gift for communicating his love of hunting and fishing. Today, Babe Winkelman is many things: Husband, father, sportsman, television personality and businessman. He is an achiever, and has been recognized for his successes. In 1992, he was inducted into the prestigious Sports Legends Hall of Fame (alongside the world’s best athletes in baseball, football, boxing, etc.) by the Touchdown Club of Columbus, Ohio. Babe is the only outdoors figure to be so honored before or since. He was inducted into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame in 1988; and the Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame in 2001. In 2007 he earned the “Excellence In Craft” award from the Outdoor Writers Association of America. Babe has spoken before American Presidents and has rubbed elbows with Hollywood stars.Prior to building himself into a fishing and hunting icon, Babe Winkelman built buildings. He formed the Winkelman Building Corporation in 1969, and the company quickly grew. Babe’s passion for fishing and hunting grew too. He had a burning desire to find some way to make his outdoor interests his profession. In 1975, he made the leap by selling his Winkelman Building Corporation shares to chase his dream. The rest, as they say, is history
