Just Fishing

One Last Entry for 2014

Tue, November 18, 2014

When I started blogging here a few years back I hoped it would bring some attention to a new venture I was beginning called Fishin Friend Guide Service. I thought writing about my fishing exploits might help drum up a little business and keep my name out there a little bit. As time has passed some things have changed as they always do in life. Now retired, I’m a little more serious about guiding, with the emphasis on little. One of my efforts to reach out a bit more has been to start a Facebook page for the guide service. I did this in late August. Since that time I’ve posted many of my outings there. If there are any guys on this site who are interested in what I’m doing they can now visit me on Facebook at Fishin Friend Guide Service. When I made this page Facebook also made a Pete Riedesel page for me and I do put up plenty of my fish pictures there too. I think I’ll still come back and post on occasion and I’ll always come back to read guys like Troy, Jeff, Nate, Jonn, and the other great writers here at If you want to contact me you can email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call 815 830 6110. Finally. here are a few of the fish Cam and I got during a wonderful Fall that saw us catch lots of beautiful muskies.

Dang, Pete, if ever I was to reconsider my no “Friend” policy, this would be it (may have to hijack my wife’s FB account).  Great fish pics yet again, always a treat to read what you and Cam were up to.  Best of luck in 2015.  Troy

Thanks Troy. And let me say that your Top 5 idea was the best thing I’ve seen in a long time for bringing guys in to participate on this site. And the weights guys caught were just amazing. I checked back regularly to see who was catching the big ones. Your blog is right at the top of the list. If you want to get out with me and Cam drop me a note when you have some time next year and we’ll get it done.
