Episode 314: Cold Front Pike in Paradise

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us up to Cree Lake in Northern Saskatchewan. Not everyday in paradise is nice. The wind can blow and the rain can fall, but when the temperatures drop quickly, it can be challenging. Charlie is joined by friend and co-owner of Cree Lake Lodge Brandon Schreiber as the two deal with some nasty conditions and inactive Pike. Lures that swim naturally without erratic action look like easy pickings when fish are fussy. Cold fronts are one of the worst conditions that can affect the activity of fish, but with a little experimenting and patience, you can turn the tables in your favour.

When Mother nature throws a curve ball, adjust your technique.
