Kyle Friedges

Kyle is an avid musky and trophy pike angler. He resides south of the Twin Cities metro and has been specifically targeting muskies for over 8 years and trophy pike for almost 20 years. He considers his home waters to be the Twin Cities metro, as well as Northern WI where he has family ties. However, Kyle is not afraid to travel to find a hot bite and spends several weeks each year on the Canadian Shield waters of Northwest Ontario.

Kyle and his wife, Victoria, own and operate the YouTube channel: Cabbage Dragon Media. The mission of the channel is to be entertaining and educational, while creating a community of likeminded anglers that can engage and help each other succeed on the water. Kyle has been featured on several musky fishing specific podcasts, including The Muskie Hunks and Muskies On Tap. He also contributes to the Musky Battle in a meaningful leadership capacity, including organizing and operating the annual outing of likeminded musky anglers.

Kyle is well known for his propensity to gravitate toward Suick Thrillers to entice bites and claims that the 10” weighted wood Suick Thriller is his number one confidence bait when he needs to produce a bite. Having fished Suick baits for many years, he is honored to be a member of the Pro Staff.
