meet grant

minnesota sportsman. tv host. amazing angler.

Grant Sorensen is the host of Superior Angling T.V. a fishing show based out of Duluth, MN. Sorensen was born and raised in Duluth, MN and there is nowhere else he would rather spend his time. 

From the inland lakes of Northern MN to the wide-open waters of Lake Superior chasing all species of fish, time spent on the water is time well spent. Of all the species, Walleye and Lake Trout would have to be his favorite as they provide endless opportunity especially in Lake County and beyond.
