Troy Lindner is the current host of AnglingBuzz TV and The Ontario Experience. Born and raised in Minnesota, he grew up in a fishing family with four relatives in the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame (Al, Ron, James and Bill Lindner) — more than any other family. Son of the legendary angler Al Lindner, Troy’s passion for the outdoors runs thick in his blood. He also has a passion for fitness and traveling.
His dedication to fitness allowed him to compete for Arizona State University on the track and field team. After graduating from ASU, he moved to Los Angeles and started a personal training business working with many top personalities in TV, music and sports.
An avid bass tournament fishermen, he has won over 40 events in the West, including the 2016 Wild West West Bass Trail Angler of the Year. Nowadays, he splits his time between California and Minnesota working on the TV shows and enjoys journeying across North America and beyond to explore new fishing opportunities. A seasoned bass tournament fisherman, he has won over 40 events in the Southwest. He has traveled and fished all over the world; sharks in Florida, halibut in Alaska, Australia for barramundi and Europe for carp. You name it, Troy’s probably caught it.
Ty can’t remember when he wasn’t outside fishing or hunting, but does remember it was about the same time he started to walk. He has a strong passion for the outdoors that was instilled in him by his father and has been shared with his older brother to this day. That is the same passion he now shares at every chance with his son, Tyson.
Ty spent his college years earning a Business Management / Sales Degree at Bemidji State University, while feeding his obsession of being outdoors in a boat, on the ice, on his bow hunting stands, in the duck blind or shooting grouse.
Getting his start in the fishing industry, Ty went to work for In-Fisherman joining the Lindner’s in 1998 to sell everything from TV, Print and Digital Advertising as well as having a hand in working with and promoting the In-Fisherman Professional Walleye Trial (PWT). After 10 years he moved on to sell TV and Digital Advertising in the hunting industry as well as fishing for Babe Winkelman Productions for the next 6 years. Ty has come full circle rejoining the Lindner’s once again, now at Lindner Media Productions handling the multi-media sales efforts as well as some on camera talent.
