Episode 325: Early Season Fishmaster’s Salmon

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us to Lake Ontario near the city of St. Catharines. After a short morning run to the marina, Charlie joins up with friend Steve Hardcastle from Fishmaster's Ultimate Charters. This is early Spring and the waters are cold, but the Salmon fishing can be fantastic. Cover water with a variety of techniques and let the fish tell you what they want, and when you find that perfect lure and colour, line counter reels can help you stay exactly where you need to be. Even the Salmon will give up a valuable clue once in a while. Find the bait and the lake comes alive…
