Episode #345 Blades for Muskies

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us up to Georgian Bay in Central Ontario. 

Muskie are the target today, and with these fish known as the fish of 10,000 casts, every fish is a great fish!  Heavy duty rods and reels are important for big fish and large lures; a wide selection of colours is vital to dial in on what grabs their attention.  Nothing is left to chance and everything is double checked for these hard fighters.  Tools and equipment need to be ready, and even some items can be like having an extra person on board.  Get it right, and the rewards can be fantastic.
