9-5 and 5-9

I don’t define myself by what I do for a living. I don’t introduce myself with my job title or name drop the company I work for. I’m just Pete. An around-the-clock outdoorsman who’s quick with a story and a few laughs.  Whether I’m in a fishing boat, a duck blind or a conference room. … Continue reading

The Short Net

The fight was epic. I set the hook into what I thought was a log. Then she shook her head. The rod thumped twice electrifying my hands. I didn’t say a word. I just started reeling. My mind raced through the checklist. Keep the line tight. Keep her head down. Get her to the boat … Continue reading

Detroit River Walleye Fishing

The Steel Mill. Fighting Island. Detroit is such a badass city even the fishing holes have hardcore names. I’m used to “country” fishing. Where hotspots have nicknames like bass cove or pike point. Where it’s not uncommon to see whitetails eating breakfast in the thin morning mist. Or listening to loons call back and forth … Continue reading

Fireworks, Cold Beer and Hammer-Handles

Every great fishing trip has three things: 1. Good Fishing 2. A go-to- lure 3. And a memorable theme song. Armed with some spinner baits and braving ridiculously hi temps, me and the boys laid the hammer-down on some bass, walleye and pike. We landed approx 30 fish in 4 days of fishing at Lost … Continue reading

A Legend is Born

KVD. B.Dance. John Heiple. John has become a legend at Lost Lake Woods Club. His heroic battle with a 7lb walleye on Badger Lake was amazing to witness. Watching him transcend from amateur angler to superstar is, admittedly, hilarious. Lost Lake Woods Club (LLWC) is a club for families, golfers and sportsmen located just outside of Alpena, MI. I’ve been fishing and … Continue reading

Adventure Fishing in Northern Michigan

Adventure Fishing was the theme last weeked. Dedicated to trying new waters I took a simple approach. Ask friends for recommendations where to fish. And try it out. The pay-off was an unforgettable weekend. Friday morning started with a quick 1 1/2 hour trip on familiar waters to warm up my casting arm. We were fishing in Badger Lake at Lost Lake Woods club near … Continue reading

Fishing at its Best in Michigan

Here are some pics and tips on how we got the job done last weekend on a small inland lake near Alpena, MI, last weekend. Troll for Walleye … Continue reading

25% Walleye

Just settled in at my desk after another morning of chasing walleye on the Detroit River before work. Getting up at 4:30 to go fishing seems like a good idea until about 11 am. Good news, there’s enough coffee in my office to keep me awake. Bad news, the coffee tastes like shit.  This was my fourth wally … Continue reading

Are Fish From the Detroit River Safe to Eat?

I’ve heard at least 100 different opinions about eating walleye caught out of the Detroit river. Most non-fishermen are disgusted by the idea. But most anglers seem alright with it. I personally don’t have an issue with eating a few walleye from the river per year. If you fry them up right you can hardly taste the PCB’s … Continue reading
