Episode 27
Walleyes and Pike in the U.P.
Show Date: July 1st & 2nd, 2017
Location: The Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Near Houghton/Hancock

This week we got to tour the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and check out a couple of lakes for walleye and pike. We’ve got two friends with us from AMSOIL, as well as Pete Maina, who agreed to run the boat for us. Pete is a master at navigating around with the MinnKota while muskie fishing, so he didn’t have a problem putting us on the weeds where the walleye are hiding.
We are mostly using plastics in the form of Kalin’s Grubs and Jerk Minnows, while Pete is casting crankbaits.

Episode 28
Catch of the Week Winners
Show Date: July 8th & 9th, 2017
Location: Delavan Lake, Delavan, Wisconsin
Guide: Pro Bass Angler & Guide Matt Bichanich [414-331-1681]
 

This week we had the grand prize winner of the 2016 #Baitmate Catch of the Week Contest, Tony Przytulski.  Tony brough his dad Tom along for the trip, and we brought them to Delavan Lake in Walworth County Wisconsin.  Our guide, Matt Bichanich, our resident bass expert is going to show Tony and Tom why this lake is such a good bass lake. 

Delavan Lake gets a lot of pressure from pleasure boaters and fisherman alike, but still produces a lot of beautiful bass, some of which can be over 5 pounds.  This is why Matt loves to bring people here, because it’s consistent.  He’s got a lot of places to look for fish, the best places this time of year are deep weed edges, and pitching under docks along the shore.

Episode 29
Trolling and Casting Green Bay
Show Date: July 15th & 16th, 2017
Location: Bay of Green Bay; Oconto, WI
Guide: Brett Jolly [715-581-5678 | captainjollycharters.com]
 

This week we’ve got walleye on the brain, and are excited to welcome our Arizona guide, and Baitmate Pro Bass Angler, Ron Johnson onto our Recon for a fun day of walleye fishing on the Bay of Green Bay.  Captain Brett Jolly is our guide, and he's a masterful troller, and a blast to fish with. 

Brett says when the conditions are right you can jig all day, but if you want to catch big fish, trolling is the way to go.  There are some gigantic fish in the bay, and during the day, there’s no better way to catch them this time of year.  Jolly is a skilled troller, and if you think trolling is a “lazy” way to fish, just watch Brett manage 8 lines when there are 2 fish on at the same time - it’s a hectic and exhilarating way to fish.

Once the sun starts to go down, and you’ve got some wind, moving shallow to cast for walleyes is the perfect cherry on top of an already great day of angling.  We catch fish into the dark because we were having too much fun to hang it up. 

“One more cast, then we’ll go in”

Big Green Lake
Show Date: July 22nd & 23rd, 2017
Location: Big Green Lake, Green Lake, Wisconsin
Guide: Pro Bass Angler & Guide Matt Bichanich [414-331-1681]



This week we're fishing Big Green Lake with good buddies Matt Bichanich and Henry Abbott.  Big Green Lake is such a versatile body of water, offering trout, pike, bass, catfish, and panfish.  It’s a great body of water to take kids to, because you can usually find a bite somewhere, whether it’s deep-water jigging for trout, or working the shallow weeds for bass.  

 Episode 31
Northwoods Family Vacation
Show Date: July 29th & 30th, 2017
Location: Vilas Co, Wisconsin



We’ve been getting the family together every year for a northwoods vacation for over 15 years, and as the family has grown, we’ve had more anglers to fish with.  Fishing was a little of a struggle, but we still were able to put everyone on fish, whether it be panfish for the younger grandkids, or bass and pike for the older kids.
