The Employee Fishing Outing
Show Date: September 2nd & 3rd, 2017
Location: Upper Peninsula of Michigan
It’s our annual trip that Ryan Erdmann, the photographer that has been behind the camera for over 11 years, gets to participate in what he documents every week.
We’ve traveled through the Ottawa National Forest in search of lakes that we’ve never fished before. With help from the Michigan DNR website, we were able to find lakes that would have walleyes & pike, which was our target for the trip. We end up with a pretty bad cold front, and are very limited to where we can fish out of the wind. In the spots where we can fish, all we need to do is look for weeds on our Humminbirds, and set up just outside to cast in. We catch a lot of beautiful fish, and have a great time exploring the UP.
Fall Bass in Northern Wisconsin
Show Date: September 9th & 10th, 2017
Location: Iron River, Wisconsin
Guide: Josh Teigen [715-813-0575 | joshteigen.com ]
This weeks show is a tale of 2 days, we arrive on the day of a massive cold-front, and are expecting fishing to be tough. Our guide Josh Teigen said the day before we arrived, it was 75℉, and the day we’re fishing it’s 49℉ with rain. This is a great way for my daughter Blake, who is joining the show, to see how things are done when the fishing is expected to be tough.
As expected the first day is really tough, low pressure has turned these bass off, and we end up getting rained off the lake late in the day.
We don’t have high hopes for day two, but we get on a spot, and they are really schooled up! We end up having one of the best large mouth bass days ever. Using different plastics like the Kalin’s Wack-O and Jerk Minnow is triggering these fish to bite like crazy!
The Harbors of Lake Michigan
Show Date: September 23rd & 24th, 2017
Location: Lake Michigan, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Guide: Captain Caleb Zorn [Wacky Walleye Guide Service - 920-743-5731 | wackywalleye.com]
The king salmon are heading back to the harbors this time of year, which is why this is a great time to target them. Captain Caleb starts us off trolling during the middle of the day, because the jig bite is better in the early mornings and evenings. We get a few fish, but get stormed off before we’re able to jig.
When we get back out we’ve got great weather, and the bobber bite is on fire in the Milwaukee harbor, and we catch a lot of beautiful fish.
Lake Miltona Fall Muskies
Show Date: September 30th & October 1st, 2017
Location: Lake Miltona, Miltona, Minnesota
Guide: Dave Williamson [320-491-2898]
Accommodations: [Viking Bay Resort & Lodge - 218-943-2104 | https://vikingbay.com/ ]
As the water cools down September, October, & November are great months to get on the water to muskie fish. The muskie are heading to shallow water this time of year because the water is cooling down, and they are following batfish. We are on Lake Miltona with a great group of guys, who are also great fisherman. Dustin Carlson, Dave Williamson, John “Recon John” Johnson, and Pete Maina - who is running our Recon. Dustin and Dave are in another Recon, and with two boats, we should be able to patter these fish faster.
Lake Miltona in central Minnesota is a divers fishery with good forage, and is well stocked with muskies. We arrive on the start of a pretty severe cold front, and although the temperature has dropped more that Pete would’ve liked, he still thinks it will trigger fish to bite.
