Hello, my name is Captain “Walleye” Pete Dahlberg. I’m a U.S. Coast Guard Certified Captain and Licensed Guide in MD. I currently live in St. Leonard, MD, approximately 12 miles from Solomons Island.
I grew up in Camden, NY, a small town in upstate NY. My life centered around my next fishing trip with my dad and grandmother. I fished mostly for Walleye Pike in Oneida Lake and Brown Trout in the local rivers and streams. At the age of 12 I was skippering the family boat to the hot Walleye areas. I’m 54 years old and can’t remember exactly when I first wet a line, think I was in diapers.
I’ve been guiding 19 years on the Chesapeake Bay. I’m currently in my 15th year of full-time guiding, spending over 200 days a year on the water. If I’m not fishing, I’m talking about fishing or writing about fishing. Taking folks on the water for a fun filled, successful day of fishing is my passion.
It was a life long dream of mine to be a fishing guide. April of 2000 the dream became reality and I obtained my licensing and Four Seasons Guide Service. The United States Air Force brought me to the Chesapeake. I retired from the Air Force after 22 1/2 years service in Nov 2004.
As a guide, I don’t bring 30 years of guiding experience to the boat. What I bring is a wealth of enthusiasm, ambition, and a sincere concern to provide the best fishing experience possible every single trip, and true love for the sport of fishing.
