Episode 338: Shallow Water St.Clair Muskie

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us over to Lake St. Clair in South Western Ontario.

After an early morning run in the RAM, Charlie joins up with Captain Jim Fleming from Drifter 2 Charters for the mighty Muskie.  Most of the success on these Shallow waters come from Planner boards to get out and away from the boat,  and line counter reels are a must to keep lures dialed in at exact depths.   With waves building and severe storms in the area, the first day is wisely cut short.  Day 2, John Heighington from Proctor Marine makes the trip,  and enjoys a welcome day out of the shop and a fun day on the water.
