We believe in leading life our own way by blazing our own trail. We don't always know what that is going to bring us everyday but we know the path will be our own, and it will be interesting. If we are lucky it may even turn into a tale or two for the campfire that evening or for your children someday.

Capt "SGT" Peterson has been perfecting his 5 Step Proven Process for catching only the biggest fish since the age of 4 on the lakes, rivers and creeks of Northern Minnesota and Canada. It is a simple but effective method to catch the biggest of the species that has been tested in waters all over the world.  From 40 inch Northern Pike and Large Muskies, Big Walleyes, Large and Small Mouth Bass and Massive Lake Superior Lake Trout in our home state of MN all the way to Giant Southern Stingrays in Tampa Bay, SGT Peterson has them figured out.  He has caught huge Spinner Sharks in the Atlantic and the biggest Salmon and Halibut in Alaska.  He has fought with barracudas with teeth bigger than kitchen knives in the Pacific to the biggest Bull Red Fish, Kings, Grouper, and sharks in the Gulf of Mexico. Their are not many guides that have caught as many species of fish as Capt "SGT" Peterson. Many guides can catch you a bunch of little fish. Some can catch you a limit of keepers. Few guides can get your trophy fish in the boat.

If you believe what we believe, maybe you should try us. You just might find a guide for life. You may become part of the Capt "SGT" Peterson's extended family and come back year after year like so many. We don't make clients, we make freinds, if your service is at anytime not up to your satisfaction we will make it right ASAP.

My kids and I had a antastic trip with Captain Tim. He is extremely knowledgeable and worked hard to help us catch some keeper grouper and red snapper! It was a great day! Shannon Carlyle - Dog Island, FL June 2018


Been out with Captain Tim twice this month.(May) He has always put us on the fish.  Enjoyed every minute of our trips. Great job Tim. Thank you.

This was an unforgettable experience, you were excellent, from the time we contact you on the phone to make preliminary arrangements all the way to the end of our journey. We not only had a wonderful time, but we learned a lot about deep ocean fishing and got enough fish for several days of lunch and dinner. We highly recommend you..

We had an awesome time with Captain Peterson! He took us right where the fish were and they were biting all morning; Kings, Snapper, Cobia and Shark. He was great with the kids, down to earth, knowledgeable and we felt like we’d known him for years. We will definitely book with Captain Peterson again!
William Henley, Georgia, August 2018
Got an early 7:30 am 8 hour trip out to big reef about 9 miles out in State waters! Immediately started catching lots of Cobias and hooking up to all types of unknowns since they so big we either had them breaking our lines and many leaders! The water was alive below the boat with Spade fish, Cobias, King Mackerel, Barracudas and some huge Sharks of various species! Saw many feeding frenzies of sharks and large groups of King Mackerels! For some reason we couldn’t figure out, they fish we were after were being finicky and just not getting in the cooler! We had a great time though and a beautiful day in the water! Captain Tim was very knowledgeable on the areas and type of fish but was just as frustrated as we were trying to get keepers in the boat! But we did bring home some good fillets that he cut up for us before we headed home! Will try to plan another trip with him soon!

Great trip….knowledgeable, skilled & personable captain. Definitely recommend and would use again.

Capt. Peterson has converted me from a girl who lounges in the sun on the front of the boat to a girl who fishes.  His energy and enthusiasm for fishing is contagious and it helps that we always catch a lot of fish.
