Episode 31
Bayfield County with Josh
Show Date: August 4th & 5th, 2018
Location: Bayfield County & Chequamegon Bay, Ashland, Wisconsin
Guide: Josh Teigen [715-813-0575  | ]

We’re on Josh Teigen’s home water, and he knows all the best spots. There are so many lakes to choose from in this area, and this week we are out on the Pike Lake Chain.  With all these lakes connected together, there are a bunch of species to choose from.  We are targeting largemouth bass in deep water along weed edges. Fishing in 15-20 feet, we are using something that will get down to that depth, but also needs to be as light as possible so our plastics have the best action.  

The inland fishing is slower than normal because of a mayfly hatch that was going on while we were there.  When this is going on, all the fish are just stuffed with the millions of mayflies that are in the water. To finish out our trip, we head out on the the bay, and find smallmouth, walleye, and pike.  

Episode 32
Family Fishing Vacation
Show Date: August 11th & 12th, 2018
Location: Vilas County, Wisconsin

It’s always fun to get together with family and friends in the Wisconsin northwoods to relax and fish.  This year the weather was great, and just about every species of fish was biting.  We got to target bass and walleye for the kids, and crappies for the grandkids.  

I absolutely love getting up north to be with the family, and of course get on the lake to fish!

Episode 33
Summer Fishing on Eagle Lake
Show Date: August 18th & 19th, 2018
Location: Eagle Lake Ontario | Accommodations: Andy Myers Lodge, Vermilion Bay [ | 888-727-5865]

If you ever get a chance to get to Canada to fish, you should take it.  We are on Eagle Lake in Ontario, and we’ve been coming here for over 25 years.  Eagle Lake is a massive body of water that covers over 68,000 acres, and is 70 miles from end to end.  This versatile fishery has walleye, muskie, smallmouth bass, trout, & northern pike.  All you need to do is walk down to the dock in the morning after breakfast, and there are nearly endless possibilities.  Eagle Lake also gives anglers the very realistic possibility to catch their personal best in any of those species.  

Now I am the most excited to be back, and introduce Blake to her very first Canadian fishing adventure.  For our visit, we decide to target walleye & muskie, and Eagle has giants of both species.  Our guide Danny Herbeck has already guided his customers to over 6,000 walleyes this year.  Danny sets us up in an area where he’s been catching fish, but uses our Humminbird HELIX to zero in on where the fish are schooling.  He says “There is no reason to start fishing until you check the locator to see if there are fish there.”

After the walleyes successfully wear us out, we head out to finish our first day muskie fishing.  On day two we troll for muskie, which was thrilling to see Blake catch her first.

It’s always a great time fishing out of Andy Myers Lodge, and this one will be especially memorable.  Thanks to Danny & Steve Herbeck, Pete Maina, and Julian Kalka for everything you did to make this trip what it was!

 Episode 34
Walleye Fishing in the U.P.
Show Date: August 25th & 26th, 2018
Location: Baraga Area, Upper Peninsula of Michigan

Our buddy, Pro Bass Angler Ron Johnson is in town, and he’s showing us where he spends some of his summer in the U.P.  Ron has family in the area, and they’ve got a lot of different lakes to choose from, whether you want to target bass, walleye, panfish, or others.  Many of these lakes are very close together, so you can fish multiple lakes in one day without much difficulty.  This week we’re targeting walleye, and Ron tells us that he catches everything on plastic, which makes the fishing that much more exciting. Captain Brett Jolly had a day off, and is joining us too.
