Captain
Tim "SGT" Peterson

Member since May 2018 Apalachicola, United States
Background
With more than 36 years of fishing experience under his belt, Captain Tim "SGT" Peterson knows all the ins and outs that make for a good fishing trip. His grandfather got him interested in the sport from an early age, and he hasn't looked back since. He's fished all over the country, in places like Panama City, the Tampa area, Key West, Alaska, Cape Cod, Lake Superior, and more.
Techniques
I love live bait and lighter tackle to hook the biggest and best fish. We believe in Kaizen, the ancient Japanese word that means continuous improvement. We apply this to everything in our lives from family matters to fishing. If you believe in sharpening your blade until it's razor sharp then you are probably just like us. Inspire continuous improvement through camaraderie and the outdoor movement. 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. 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 fish. He started captaining at the age of 10.
