Hello, I am Jim Peters. I have been fishing my entire life. I am a Coast Guard licensed Captain. Whether it is sport fishing, tournaments or guiding, I love to fish! I have lived in Hastings Minnesota, not far off the Mississippi River which is also only a few short miles to the St. Croix River.
Not many anglers realize what a complete fishery these two rivers are. Walleyes, Bass, Muskie, Panfish, Catfish, Sturgeon and rough fish. Spring, summer and fall there is always a valid option for each of these species. River fishing takes a different approach and attitude than most lakes and I have fishing the river since who knows when.
I am not just a river fisherman. I fish many lakes in Minnesota and Wisconsin. My favorite is Mille Lacs for walleyes! I began fishing Mille Lacs 28 years ago. I was a cabin owner in the Emily Minnesota area and would run over to Mille Lacs on day trips all the time. I sold the cabin because it cut into my time to fish and had me too much on one lake.
I have been guiding for 20 years and a tournament angler for 24 years. Both are very enjoyable, but guiding is a passion. I enjoy teaching people new presentations, new spots and theories about fishing. It has taken years to accumulate this knowledge and I am willing to share it. If you are looking to see, fish and experience new waters and techniques that you can use on your own the next time you are out fishing, then I am the guide for you.
I am primarily on the rivers or Mille Lacs, but I have background on many other area lakes. I am walleye angler at heart, but I am really a multi-species fisherman!
So, if you are looking to get out on the water, please visit the rest of my site and contact me. I promise you will not be disappointed!
