    Default Giant Bull Reds

    I had the opportunity to go on a walk on trip with Captain Walleye Pete. My brother was visiting from Michigan and I was able to get him on the boat as well. He doesn't get to fish that often, so this was a treat for him. We were joined by Jacob, John, Jason, and his daughter Lauren.

    We started off fishing structure and thew topwaters and crankbaits. Schoolies were mostly caught, but there were some keepers mixed in. Later in the day Pete started looking for breakers. When we found them, it was constant action with schoolies. We threw heavy metals with hopes of hooking into a bull red underneath the schoolies. My brother was slowly working a stingsilver tight to the bottom. He said he had a very subtle bite and set the hook. Then his drag start screaming. The first bull red was on. He landed it after several minutes and it weighed 47lbs on the boga. After a few pictures, while the fish was being released, Jacob hooks up with another red. This fish weighed 42lbs on the boga. Later that morning, it was my turn. My fish weighed 38lbs. A couple minutes later, Lauren hooks up. She was at the front of the boat and her dad Jason helped bring it to the back, so she could fight it better. She did a great job fighting the fish and it weighed 42lbs on the boga. We finished the day fishing breakers. We caught a few more keeper stripers, some blues, and I caught my first Spanish mackerel.

    It was an epic day of light tackle fishing on the Chesapeake Bay. Big props to Captain Walleye Pete for putting us on the fish. It will be very hard to top this trip. Below is a video of the trip. Here's a link to it if you can't view the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bgai8PjQYPc&t=172s

    Thanks guys. This was a hard video to make. I had so much footage to go through and cut out. Pete really knows these waters well. Whenever I try to repeat the same thing on my boat I don't do as well. Wish I had more time to spend on the water. I'm hoping to get out this weekend.

    Once again Tommy you've provided a great fact filled video of a memory making fishing trip.
    Captain Pete should hire you as his production chief!

    Thanks Capt. Dale. I can make a decent video when I can capture great footage like that. That sounds like a great idea. I hope he can afford me. LOL!

    Pete is a fantastic guide and knows the waters he fishes as well as anybody on the bay. He would love the fishery we enjoy down here in southern Florida and this is the place for big critters.
