Tom “Tommy” Kemos made the crossover from bass competition to the professional walleye ranks in 1998 fishing the Master Walleye Circuit, and joined the In-Fisherman PWT circuit in 2002 qualifying for their Championship his first year.
In 2005 Tom was the In-Fisherman PWT Eastern Division Champion. That same season he finished fifth at the PWT Championship.
2006 found Tom at the top of his game and the top of the podium when he laid claim to the winner’s trophy at the PWT Championship. He followed up with a 9th place finish in the same event for 2007.
In 2008 Tommy teamed up with some of the best-known walleye competitors to form a brand new tournament trail;AIM. This new "catch, photo, release" format has raised the bar by which all current and future tournament trails will need to reach.
Tommy is well versed in both trolling and jigging techniques. However he still catches flak for his “bass” style antics especially when he “flips-in” a walleye during a tournament.
His pure love of fishing for anything that swims has also made him a recognized musky angler, especially on the lakes of Waukesha County where he calls home.
