Episode 14
Lake Trout in the City
Show Date: April 3rd & 4th, 2010
Location: Milwaukee Harbor; Milwaukee Wisconsin
Guide: Charter Captain Brian Settele [414-559-9238 | fishchaserguideservice.com]

Now that the lake trout season is open we wanted to head out onto lake michigan to target these beautiful fish.  We again in the harbor right in downtown Milwaukee with charter captain Brian Settele.  We have  a few guests that couldn't wait to join us as well, Tom and Ryan from Johnsonville Sausage.  Staying vertical seems to be the key to catching these monsters.  The key to finding them though is to putt around slowly checking the graph for schools of baitfish.  Brian tells us that even if you don’t mark the fish, if you find the bait, they will be there. 


Episode 15
A Windy Day on the Fox River
Show Date: April 10th & 11th, 2010

Guide: Bret Alexander [920-851-4214 | alexandersportfishing.com]

We are on the Fox River on a windy spring day with Charter Captain Bret Alexander on the hunt for trophy walleye.  Also joining us is Pete Maina of the Next Bite and Sgt. Mark Meunier, a retired member of the US armed forces.  Together we try a magnitude of different methods for a chance at the trophies that attract anglers to this river from all over the mid-west.  We also try different locations, and finish the day parked up by the dam casting after the sun goes down. 


Episode 16
Peshtigo Float Trip
Show Date: April 17th & 18th, 2010
Location: Peshtigo River; Peshtigo, Wisconsin
Guide:  Pro Ice Guide Larry Smith [920-361-4996 | walleyeguide.com]

It is a gorgeous 65 degree day in April on the Pestigo River, the perfect day for a float trip.  This unique trip is a scenic and quiet slow drift down the river, all the while casting for walleyes and pike.  Also joining us on our trek down the river is charter captain Brian Settele.  A jig and a 5” GULP Alive jerk shad is the bait of choice.  Even more unexpected than the beautiful weather for this trip is the size and numbers of walleye that we are catching.  Just about every fish that we boat are of trophy caliber, and fighting these beasts is even more exciting in the fast current of the river.  This memorable day of fishing will not be soon forgotten, as it is one of the best walleye bites that we have ever found ourselves on.

Episode 17
Unbelievable Lake Michigan Perch
Show Date: April 24th & 25th, 2010
Location: Lake Michigan, Waukegan, Illinois
Guide:    Captain Tim Wojnicz [262-652-4459 | finquestfishing.com]

It’s one of our favorite trips of the year, and also one of the shortest, and that’s not a bad thing at all.  We are on Lake Michigan off of Waukegan, Illinois fishing for jumbo perch.  Our Captain; Tim Wojnicz, took us out last year and we had our limit of perch in just over an hour.  We have a few guests with us this year, and as soon as their lines are in the water, they are catching huge fish hand over fist.
We head out in the very early morning to set up our first drift.  We are a few miles from shore, and it’s pretty close to a glass calm day on the lake.
