Saturday was my first time fishing with Captain Walleye Pete of Four Seasons Guide Service. Simply put, Pete lives the dream! I know he works extremely hard and says he’s tired after every trip, but how many people get to do what they truly love FOR A LIVING? His office is a brand new 27′ Judge Chesapeake outfitted with the latest Lowrance HDS technology, XM radio, wireless internet via laptop computer, heat, etc… Pete sure has a nice setup. Oh yea, he knows how to put his clients on fish too…
We left Flag Harbor around 6:30am due south and started fishing immediately after a 2 mile run. The first drift produced a very nice fish over 40 inches using one of my custom 1.5oz jigheads and a 10” purple glitter BKD.
We probably caught between 60-70 fish today, which is great for February using light tackle. We each landed a fish over 40 inches and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to fish with Pete for my first time.
My site is still in the works and my plan is to eventually incorporate a lure and tackle section but for now I’ll tell you I was using one of my favorite setups:
