Bait Crushers Inc.
“Holy Cow Dave! Is that a big pike??!”

Show Date: May 12th & 13th, 2007
Location: Lake Wisconsin, Lodi, WI
Guide: Pro Guide Dave Ehardt [414-803-7160]

Lake Wisconsin has 9500 acres and has 57 miles of shoreline, with all that water to fish, why would you ever need to go upstream? Well if the Bass are schooled like piranhas, and completely crushing your bait, you might reconsider. Case in point. We join pro guide Big Dave Ehardt as he takes John upstream of the Lake Wisconsin Flowage. It seems as though the fish are catching the bait, rather than the other way around. These hungry bass, most of which are small-mouths, make for an exciting fishing experience, and not to mention a great TV show. Dave tells us that the fishing can be good the entire stretch between the lake and Wisconsin Dells, but anglers beware; this river can be treacherous in spots because of shallow water and large rocks. Hire a guide, hire Big Dave.
