Episode 326: Cast a Mile and Trolling for Success

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us up to Cree Lake in Northern Saskatchewan. Charlie is once again at one of his favourite Pike lakes of all time, and joining Charlie is co-owner of Cree Lake Lodge Brandon Schreiber. Large Pike are a tremendous amount of fun, but even in paradise you still need to feel out the fish's mood and present the right action and lure style for the day. Long casts and proper presentations always play a key role.

Then an afternoon of Lake Trout. When these fish are looking for a meal, attractors can be worth their weight in gold when covering large areas.
