Get to Know our Top Contributors: Anthony Paecht

A Branford resident, Anthony Paecht has been the Branford Patch Where in Branford? reigning champion since the game began.

joined Branford Patch on Dec. 29, 2011 just 12 days after the site officially launched. He has been playing since we debuted this photo hunt at the end of February and has won more than 12 times. Each time he gets a small Patch prize for his smarts!

Paecht has been a frequent contributor in addition to his love of photo hunting and in fact, it was his question in January, ? that inspired us to launch the Q&A feature we currently run.

Wow nice striper and looks like a great fishing boat! Did you catch the fish off Branford Reef?

Just for the record, there have been MANY times I've known the answer to WIB but have let Anthony have it because it obviously means so much to the guy. ; )

Thanks Lori...that picture was taken in the Chesapeake Bay. The boat was great and we were raking them in. I have had luck at Branford Reef as well. Another spot I go to is the rocks off of Owenego near the beach.
