Peter Miller is the host of Bass 2 Billfish. He is a lifelong fisherman and avid outdoorsman. Originally from Tappan, New York, Peter's forays into fishing took place on freshwater streams and lakes in upstate New York. Appreciating his son's interest in fishing, Peter's father began taking him saltwater fishing off the coast of Long Island and New Jersey, where his interest quickly turned to striped bass and tuna. His first striped bas was caught within view of the World Trade Center.

In 1989, Peter and a friend established the "Get Lit Fishing Team" - a tournament fishing team which went on to become one of the most successful sailfishing teams in the South Florida history. Still going strong today, Peter and his Get Lit teammates have won or placed in over 80 high profile billfish tournaments - sailfish, marlin and swordfish. Some of their notable wins include: Three-time World Sailfish Champions, three-time winners of the Silver Sailfish Derby, two-time Cheeca Lodge Presidential Sailfish Tournament winners, two-time K-Rock Classic winners as well as winners of the Captain Bob Lewis Billfish Challenge, Florida Swordfish Series, Dewar's 12 Billfish Championships, Miami Raft Invitational and others. Peter has also won numerous individual angling awards and is a three-time back-to-back divisional winner of the World Billfish Series.

When not fishing, Peter is a television host and spokesman for various fishing and non-fishing related products. He has appeared in numerous national commercials as well as over 100 ad campaigns. His most recent ads include: Raymarine, Bass Pro Shops, Ocean LED, Buff, Norelco, Ford, Wrangler, Penn, Stren, Costa Del Mar, Pelagic and Home Depot. Peter has also appeared in over 30 fishing TV Shows; tournament related as well as reality based shows.
