This week we’re on some of the best muskie water in North America, the St. Lawerence Seaway in Montreal Quebec Canada. We’re guided by a guy who has boated more 50 inch fish than anybody we know, Pro Guide Marc Thorpe. While we’re in town, the trolling bite is what’s bringing in the fish. We are doing a unique style of trolling called “speed-trolling,” which as its name implies - is trolling quite fast. Marc has us going anywhere between 4.8 and 5.5 miles per hour, and the rods are buried right in the water, with the baits situated right in the wash from behind the boat. At these speeds, and with the gigantic fish that hit, the line absolutely screams off the reel when they hit.

Big Bite on the Bay
Show Date: September 21st & 22nd, 2013
Location: The Bay of Green Bay, Wisconsin
Guide: Pro Guide Larry Smith [920-361-4996 | walleyeguide.com]
This weeks show takes us to the bay of Green Bay Wisconsin for a walleye jigging bite that has garnered limits for our guide Larry Smith all summer long. We’re fishing rocks and weeds using Gulp! & Kalin’s Lunker Grubs. Casting out, and ‘popping’ them back, working the bottom.
Later on in the day, Larry has a surprise for us - muskie fishing! We’ve heard a lot about the giant muskies that are swimming very near by where we are walleye fishing. We’re trolling, using crank-baits in the afternoon, and it doesn't take long for the first reel to go off.
Fall Mulit-Species Bite
Show Date: September 28th & 29th, 2013
Location: Various Lakes, St. Germain - Vilas County, Wisconsin
Guide: Pro Guide Rob Manthei [715-477-2042 | robmanthei.com]
It’s finally fall in northern Wisconsin, and there are a lot of fish to catch. We spend two days with our guide and friend Rob Manthei in Vilas County, which offers a plentiful array of lakes that hold all kinds of fish across many species. We are working weed edges in around 10 feet, and are catching crappie, perch, walleye, and even pike. We are using dead-hooked minnows and small plastics for the panfish, and nightcrawlers, minnows, and plastics for the walleye and pike.
