Steve’s 2024 Fishing Book Is Now Open!
Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Famer Steve Heiting is now booking days in 2024 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.

“I wanted to sincerely thank you for the gift that you gave my Dad and I yesterday. The way you took care of us throughout the day and did everything you could to make for an enjoyable experience is truly appreciated. My Dad had a wonderful day and I believe the experience will be one of his greatest memories. As you can tell he is aging a bit, however he was completely comfortable and you made everything such an easy experience for him.”

“My cousin Jim and I headed out Friday evening for our first outing of the weekend and on my second cast this musky hits my lure about 30 feet from the boat and it’s game on. With some great coaching from Steve, we got this 46.5-inch beauty in the boat for a few pictures and released it for the next lucky fisherman. Awesome trip!”

““I was elated, just elated to catch a great fish. It was the first tiger I’ve ever caught and for me it was just a great day. When he hit, I thought ‘This is a heavy fish.’ I had no idea of the length or the weight until he got to the boat. It was really exciting.”
