Episode 320: Quality Equipment – Giant Fish

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us up to Cree Lake in Northern Saskatchewan. Charlie joins up with Adam Schreiber, co-owner of Cree Lake Lodge as the two target both Pike and Lake Trout this episode. This is one of Charlie's favourite places and for good reason, the fish are well above average in size. Giant fish can be caught on finesse presentations, or trolling the depths, but either way, be ready when that fish of a lifetime comes calling, this is what you have been waiting for. Make sure you have the tools and tackle ready for that magic moment.
