Episode #361 Finesse Walleye

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

Cree Lake Lodge is one of Charlie’s favourite places, but even Charlie is in for a surprise today. While Pike and Lake Trout were the expected targets, always be ready for opportunities, especially when the Walleye show up!!  Lightweight presentations are the magic ticket, and even having the correct equipment can make or break the day when finesse is needed.  Quality eyewear is part of your essential equipment and can help you see the unexpected.  Sight fishing for Walleye was not the plan this morning, but that changed fast.
