PRO STAFF | Lindsay Withers, Angler Profile
Full-time Paramedic, Paramedic Instructor, First Mate on the F/V Miss Megan II out of Saco, ME
I’ve been fishing since as far back as I can remember! It all began with my dad taking my brother and I bass fishing at local ponds. I didn’t truly get “hooked” until I caught my first 5 pounder when I was 15. Ever since then, I’ve been completely addicted! I’m a full-time paramedic in the city of Worcester, MA and have been involved in EMS for the last 10 years. I absolutely love my career. I’m currently in college in order to obtain my RN so I can progress in the medical field, with hopes of a Medflight career at some point in the near future. I’ve also been First Mate on the F/V Miss Megan II out of Saco, ME for the past year, and I love it! I fish for everything from Trout to Mako. On the F/V Miss Megan II, we are sponsored by Fin-Nor, Fins Braid, Bio-Edge, Oozie Jig, and Saco Bay Tackle. We are also involved with Pink Fishing, Paralyzed Veterans Fishing Association, Maine Guides Association, The Fish Nerds, and The American Bluefin Tuna Association. We fish multiple big game tournaments, as well as striped bass tournaments throughout the year, a few of my favorites being the Casco Bay Classic Sportfishing Tournament, and the Veteran’s Appreciation Fishing Tournament.
I am truly honored to be a part of Team Pink Fishing. I am a breast cancer survivor, just having gone through it this past summer and fall. Fishing was my escape from reality throughout all of my treatment. There’s nothing more peaceful than being out on the water! I received so much support during my fight and I love being able to now “pay it forward”, especially through my love of fishing!
