Steve Heiting is the Managing Editor of "Musky Hunter" magazine, North America’s largest magazine dedicated to musky fishing, and he has become one of the sport’s best-known anglers.
Although his home water is northern Wisconsin, Steve is a well-traveled angler and has caught big muskies from the northern-most musky lake in Ontario to as far south as Kentucky.
Steve is Co-Owner of the University of Esox Musky Schools and conducts seminars for sport shows and fishing clubs throughout the Midwest. Each year he serves as the master of ceremonies for the National Championship Musky Open, the largest musky tournament in the world.
Though not a tournament angler, he has fished successfully in those he has entered, including a third place finish in the PMTT’s Invitational Championship in 2000.
For 12 years, Steve was one of northern Wisconsin’s best-known musky guides.
He earned a bachelor of science degree in communication from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, graduating in 1982. Steve and his wife, Connie, live near St. Germain, Wisconsin.
Steve has produced four instructional musky fishing DVDs: "Muskies: Go With The Flow", "Trophy Musky Triggers", "Muskies: Any Time, Any Place", and "Muskies On The Move".
Steve makes regular appearances on "The Musky Hunter" TV show.
Steve has written two books. Steve’s second book, "The Complete Guide to Musky Hunting", which he co-authored with Jim Saric, is in its second edition. His first, "Musky Mastery: The Techniques of Top Guides", sold out four printings and is currently out of print.
Steve's fishing tactics have been featured in articles in "Field & Stream", "Outdoor Life", "Bass Pro Shops’ Outdoor World", and "Wisconsin Outdoor News" magazines; and he was a featured guide in three books. He is also a contributing writer to "Wisconsin Outdoor News", providing vital musky information to the readers of Wisconsin's largest outdoor publication. In addition, Steve has edited or contributed to over a dozen musky fishing books. His articles and photographs have appeared in more than two dozen magazines and newspapers covering the outdoor sports.
