Terry Peterson – Legendary Guide
Terry Peterson’s career as a fishing guide on the Hayward, WI lakes began 70 years ago in Chicago, IL when he and his buddies would take the city bus to the shores of Lake Michigan so they could spend their summer days fishing from the docks. The passion for fishing continued to grow through his childhood and teenage years, and he spent every possible moment dedicated to anything fishing. Making lures in the basement of neighborhood friends along with exploring any body of water that might possibly hold a fish continued to fuel his passion while growing up. His grandfather took him on his first trip to northern Wisconsin when he was ten years old, and they hired a guide. The experience left a lasting impression and led to a career that’s lasted over 40 years.
