CAPTAIN JOEL PIATEK
Having grown up on the St. Clair Flats with over 30 years experience hunting and fishing the region, I know where to fish and when. I’m a hardcore outdoorsman who is at it year round. My deep devotion for the outdoors has grown into a hunting and fishing addiction that keeps me busy all year long.
I recently seized an opportunity to pursue a life long passion and exploit my skills as an outdoorsman to earn income as a charter captain and guide. I feel that if I am able to share the incredible experiences I have witnessed with others who can appreciate the value of our natural resources, then at the end of the day we both will have memorable experiences to last a lifetime.
My knowledge and experience of the outdoors has opened many avenues for which I am truly grateful. In 2006, the Outdoor Channel named me “Winner of Your Own Fishing Show”, which I showcased fishing here on Lake St. Clair for ‘the Freshwater Triple Crown’ Bass, Muskie and Walleye.
Most recently, I was given the opportunity to compete on a reality outdoor television show, “The Ultimate Sportsman” which aired on VERSUS Channel Fall 2010. It was during that time when I was able to experience my most memorable adventures from Salmon fishing in Frankfort, MI to Black-tail hunting in Alaska.
