Last week on the show, AJ asked me "what are you gonna be getting into this weekend?", I stumbled over my words, but the answer is always the same "WORK". Little did I know that I would get an opportunity of a lifetime the next day! Capt. Chad Peterek called and asked me if I would like to join him on his guided trip, Friday morning. The trip was FANTASTIC! We flew down to Baffin Bay, hauling ass on his custom Haynie. When we got there, we had a few guys near "our spot" and were wondering if the bite would be any good at all. After about 20 mins, we were in em' thick! All four of us managed to knock out our limits quickly, probably caught around 50 fish and released soo many beautiful trout. I was able to land my personal best at 26" and some change. Best part of the deal? We were back at the boat ramp by 10:30am that morning, cleaned up and had margaritas in our hand before noon! All I can say is what a hell of a trip!
Capt. Peterek is a local fishing guide out of Marker 37 Marina. He is known for is monster trout fishing trips, which is basically a "Bucket List" item for many fisherman in South Texas. Luckily, I was able to cross that off my list this year! Capt. Peterek and Capt. Preston (another fishing guide under Capt. Chad Peterek's Guide Service) are booked most of the year. If you get a chance to fish with him or Capt. Preston, I would take it in a heart beat.You can find more about Capt. Peterek and his guide service at www.captchadpeterek.com or alternatively you can follow him on facebook. They post frequent updates, open fishing dates, etc.
I will keep on posting the images from trip and we will probably talk about it a bit more on this weeks show! Stay posted, keep fishing and we will talk to you Thursday!
