Steve’s 2023 Fishing Book Is Now Open!
Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Famer Steve Heiting is now booking days in 2023 for guiding in northern Wisconsin. Steve guides for muskies only, from Opening Day of the musky season into October.
Steve has fished for muskies in northern Wisconsin for more than 40 years, and has experience from Ontario to Kentucky. More than 2,000 muskies have been caught and released from Steve’s boat.
A longtime fishing educator, Steve is co-owner of the University of Esox Musky Schools and headlines the first-ever college-level musky fishing course, which is held annually at Nicolet College in Rhinelander.
Steve practices 100% catch and release with muskies.
Guests fishing with Steve will cast from the comfort of a 2022 Vexus DVX20, equipped with 300-horsepower and 15-horsepower Mercury outboards and the latest in electronics from Minn Kota and Humminbird.
You may bring your own tackle or use Steve’s. He uses only St. Croix rods rigged with the latest in musky reels, and has his boat well stocked with the most effective of musky baits, including Mepps spinners.
