Wired2fish Adds Avid Collegiate Angler, Sam Hanggi to its Staff

Grand Rapids, MN–Wired2fish, Inc. is excited to announce that they have hired Sam Hanggi of the Auburn Bass Fishing Team as Associate Editor.

Currently finishing his degree in pre-law at Auburn University, Hanggi also serves as the Auburn Bass Fishing Team Vice President. Sam’s successful collegiate fishing background, combined with his writing talent, will bring a valuable asset to the Wired2fish editorial team.

“Sam checked a lot of the boxes we needed to fill with this new position,” said COO and Publisher Jason Sealock. “He’s an avid college angler with a passion for bass fishing, but he also knows digital publishing, writing clean copy quickly, the industry jargon, and a good portion of the products we write about. And he’s located in a great area of the country to make content that resonates with our diverse angling audience.”

“I accepted this offer in the fishing industry because fishing is my obsession,” Hanggi said. “I often find myself grinding through whatever work needs to be done quickly so that I can refocus on fishing. It’s my belief that you will do your best work and go farthest in life if you have a passion for what you do and where you work, and fishing is what I truly enjoy.”

He added, “I want to make a career in this industry, and I feel that the writing skills I acquired through college will suit me well working at Wired2fish. I’ve also been a student of Wired2fish forever, so this is a dream opportunity for me. I can’t wait to see what I’ll learn next and who I’ll work with in fishing.”

Hanggi grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee, and wanted to fish at Auburn University for his entire childhood. His favorite style of fishing is throwing a big swimbait, crankbait, or just power fishing in general. Sam just came off a 3rd place win at the College B.A.S.S. event on the St. James River and, most recently, came in 7th in the MLF Abu Garcia College Fishing event at Harris Chain of Lakes in January.

As Associate Editor at Wired2fish, Sam will share his insights on successful fishing techniques, gear, and tactics with millions of Wired2fish fans.
