Pete Rich Guide Service


My name is Pete Rich, I am a musky guide in the Hayward Wisconsin area.  Growing up in Northern Illinois I would vacation to my Grandparents cabin in Northern Wisconsin.  From a young age I felt at home in the northwoods.  In Illinois and at my grandparents cabin I learned to fish Bass, Panfish, and Walleye.  I’ll be honest, my Dad and I always looked at musky anglers and wondered how guys could cast all day and be happy maybe only catching one fish.  That was until we took a trip to Lac Suel in Northwest Ontario.  I caught the first musky of my life and I was instantly hooked.  From this moment a passion developed like no other I had ever experienced.  The challenge of trying to target the top predator in the lake and then attempting to fool that fish into eating an artificial lure is something that just does it for me.  When I was presented with the opportunity to move to the Hayward area and work at the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame I jumped at the opportunity.  This has been the greatest opportunity I have ever been presented with and to this day has been the best decision of my life.”
