Just Fishing

The 2016 Fishing Season

Tue, March 22, 2016

For a couple years now I’ve had a facebook page, Fishin Friend Guide Service, and that is where I now post my fishing endeavors. Before that Jeff was kind enough to give me space here where I blogged about my time on the water.I still stop back here regularly to read all the great blogs. I just wanted to drop in a quick post and a few pics to invite guys to click over to my page if you want to read about more fishing adventures. Even better, if you know anyone looking for a guided trip for muskies, bass, or hybrid stripers you can let them know about me and my site. Good fishing to all this season!  Pete

Summer Fun

Fri, July 17, 2015

I spent a couple years posting reports here at Heartland hoping guys would enjoy my tales of fishing adventures. I knew my time as an educator was winding down and I would be starting to guide as a little retirement job when I finished my career. That time has come and I couldn’t be happier. I now post my reports and pictures at my Fishin Friends Guide Service page on Facebook but come back here often to read guys who still post so much good stuff about fishing and the outdoors. If any of you want to keep up with Cam and I stop by Facebook and check out my page. I’d love to see guys from Heartland there. Here are some pictures of some of the fish we’ve caught the last few weeks.

A Cool Start to the Year.

Mon, March 23, 2015

Guys who have read my blog for awhile know I have focussed on muskies over the past few years. This season the ice has gone off slowly so it has forced me to turn my attention to other opportunities and that has been a good thing. LaSalle Lake opens March 15th each year and is loaded with fish. I especially love fishing for the hard fighting hybrid stripers. I’ve gotten out a few times already this season and have not been disappointed. Both me, my clients, and friends have all caught some good fish and had a great time. Below I’ll post a few pictures of some of the better fish caught. If you’d like to get out with me on LaSalle or some of the other trips I do look me up on facebook at Fishin Friend Guide Service or call me at 815 830 6110. Make sure to check the facebook page regularly as this is where I will do most of my posting now.
