Boca Chica: Do you primarily wade fish, or do you fish from the boat?
Capt. Chorazak: I always fish from the boat.
Boca Chica: What is usually your target species?
Capt. Chorazak: I am usually focused on Spotted Seatrout, but depending on the time of the year I will hunt Redfish, Snook, and small inshore sharks
Boca Chica: Do you use artificial or live bait?
Capt. Chorazak: I Love artificial! 8 out of 10 times, that’s what I’m throwing. I will use live bait at times but I try to teach my clients to become proficient and confident in their presentation of artificial lures.
Boca Chica: What’s your go-to color?
Capt. Chorazak: White on a soft bodied bait. Olive green on a hard bait.
Boca Chica: In a few sentences, generally describe what you look for when locating fish or potential fishable waters. What are your summer techniques versus your winter techniques?
Capt. Chorazak: Regardless of the season, I’m looking for grass flats that are out in front of a canal of some kind, whether it be natural or man-made. I look for areas where moving water is flushing water in and out of that canal and bringing baits across that grass flat. I also fish the depth change as the flat drops off into the canal, as predatory fish cruise those deep areas looking for unsuspecting baitfish.
Boca Chica: Do you also fish tournaments? If so, what’s your favorite tournament and why?
Capt. Chorazak: I don’t fish tournaments.
Just for fun:
Boca Chica: What’s your bucket list species?
Capt. Chorazak: Even though I focus on inshore fishing, I do love offshore as well and try to go whenever I can. My bucket list species has to be tuna. Yellowfin or Bluefin.
Boca Chica: What’s the most exotic destination you’ve fished?
Capt. Chorazak: Unfortunately I’m not very exotic. Fishing the Florida Keys is special to me and I go every chance I can.
Boca Chica: Are you a baitcaster or spinning guy?
Capt. Chorazak: Spinning.
Boca Chica: What’s your largest trout? What’s your largest red?
Capt. Chorazak: Largest trout was 25 inches. Largest Redfish 30 inches.
