The Ontario Experience Hosts
Ty Sjodin is the co-host of The Ontario Experience airing on The Sportsman Channel, The Sportsman Channel — Canada and the World Fishing Network (WFN). He enjoys traveling across Ontario, experience everything the province and lodges have to offer — including the amazing hunting and multi-species fishing!
I can’t remember not wanting to be outside fishing or hunting, but my parents always said it was about the time I started to walk. I have a deep passion for the outdoors that was instilled in me by his father. That is the same passion he now shares at every chance with my older brother and my 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.
Troy Lindner was born and raised in the Brainerd Lakes Area of Minnesota. He grew up in a fishing family with four relatives in the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame (Al, Ron, James and Bill). As the son of legendary angler, Al Lindner, Troy naturally had a passion for the outdoors — it runs thick in his blood.
He is an avid bass fisherman and has won over 40 events including an FLW open and the 2016 Wild West Bass Trounament Trail—where he became Angler of the Year.
I now split the year almost in half between California and Minnesota. I love spending the spring, summer in the north woods, traveling almost non-stop as the co-host of the AnglingBuzz television show and as the host of The Ontario Experience television series.
Troy now splits the year almost in half between California and Minnesota. He spendsthe spring, summer in the north woods where he travels almost non-stop as the co-host of the AnglingBuzz television show and as the host of The Ontario Experience television series. These endeavors pretty much keep him on the water almost constantly from “ice-out” to “ice-in.” In the fall and winter he spends most of his time on the warmer, soft water areas of the Southwest fishing tournaments and traveling to far away bucket list fishing experiences. Troy loves to travel and has fished all over the world: Sharks in Florida, Halibut in Alaska, Barramundi in Australia, zander and perch throughout Europe, carp and bass in China and Japan, and this just the beginning! Troy has a distinct love for shore fishing and shares those adventures through his social media accounts.
