Episode 332: Just Another Day in Paradise

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us up to Cree Lake in Northern Saskatchewan.

Joining Charlie today is Brandon Schreiber, co-owner of Cree Lake Lodge.  Large Pike are a tremendous amount of fun, but today is truly beyond expectations.  Quality eyewear is often neglected as part of essential equipment, but it becomes even more important when sight fishing.  Finesse tactics make for a truly memorable morning.

And just when you didn’t think the day could get better, you simply never know until you try, especially with time tested favourites!!
