Beautiful Eagle Lake
Show Date: September 1st and 2nd, 2007
Location: Eagle Lake, Ontario, Canada
Guides: Danny Herbeck [1-807-227-2610 |]; Rob Manthei, [715-477-2042 |]

John ventures north to Canada, to Andy Myers Lodge on beautiful Eagle Lake in Ontario. Guided by the lodges own Danny Herbeck, and also by Rob Manthei, there is a lot of good advice to be had. In this show they go deep. First for walleye they set up some Lindy-Rigs to pull walleyes out of 37 feet of water, all well back trolling to stay in place. Then they head down a creek to another lake to pull lake trout, using a dead hooked minnow and vertical jigging in 72 feet. The problem with jigging in this deep of water is you never know when the fish is going to hit. This fishing day is just a small example of a bounty of options that were available at Andy Myers Lodge.
