We're talking fishing, and the business of fishing, this time on the Polar Kraft Podcast with Pete Patsalis of Hook One Charters and Bait Shop.
Pete is a young Charter Captain from Marine City Michigan who had a dream of making a living in the outdoors. When a local retail spot opened up, he bought it and started a bait and tackle shop.
Pete talks about the challenges of starting a business during the covid pandemic and why he's excited to grow the Hook One Franchise.
We also discuss the diverse fishery of the St. Clair River, including walleye, perch, muskies, sturgeon....and even trout and salmon.
Pete wraps up the discussion by talking about his Polar Kraft and plans to buy another one.
