Episode 342: Lake Erie Walleye Wonderland

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us over to Lake Erie near Dunnville Ontario.

After a short early morning run in the RAM, its out to Lake Erie with Fishmaster’s Ultimate Charters.  Charlie joins up with friend and owner Steve Hardcastle for big water Walleye.  When dealing with clear waters, it is either fishing deep with downriggers, or long lines, and with a little expert advice, multiple lines with side divers can be used to get out and away from the boat and still keep everything tangle free.  Line counter reels are a must to repeat successful leads, and once dialed in, it is simply set and repeat for one after another.
