Rob Manthei tells us the fall muskie sucker bite can be feast or famine. On this weeks show, we feast!
Pete Maina joins us in Vilas County to “pull some meat” and see if there are any fish that are hungry. Quick-strike rigs with live suckers are always the way to go in the fall, as well as doing some casting to lure fish in.
We end up with “One of those days you’ll never forget.” Make sure to tune in!
Walleye & Crappies with the Muskie Guru

Location: St. Germain, Wisconsin

Accommodations: St. Germain Lodge [ StGermainLodge.com ]
This week we’re out with two die-hard muskie anglers, Guide Rob Manthei & Pete Maina - our resident “Muskie Guru.” It’s fall so that can only mean one thing…walleyes and crappies!
Yes, we’re in Vilas County targeting walleye and crappie. Rob tells us that this time of year is great for any angler or sportsman, because there are so many options. You can muskie fish, be in the woods hunting, or fishing walleye, bass, or crappie - like we’re doing today.
Plastics are our main bait, and we’re fishing in 18 to 30 feet of water, doing some vertical jigging.
Big Bass on a Beautiful Fall Day
Show Date: November 28th & 29th, 2015
Location: Lake Superior, Chequamegon Bay; Ashland, Wisconsin
Guide: Josh Teigen [715.813.0575 | joshteigen.com ]
Accommodations: River Rock Inn & Bait Shop [ riverrockinn.net ]
This unseasonably warm fall continues as we head up to Ashland Wisconsin to chase smallmouth bass around Chequamegon Bay with Charter Captain Josh Teigen. Pete Maina and Jeremy Meyer are also joining us, taking a bit of time off from the woods, and muskie fishing.
Josh tells us that the bass are prepping for winter by putting weight on, which means they bite better and better as the ice approaches. We’ve also got a shot at walleye and trout as well.
Jigging using plastics and Kastmasters are the key to bringing in big bass. This same presentation attracts a few walleyes and brown trout as well.
