Episode #364 A Little Flash for Pike

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us over to the Fraser River near Mission in British Columbia.

After an early morning launch with the RAM, it’s down the river we go!  Terri and Charlie join up with legendary guide Len Ames for a fun day of Fraser River Sturgeon.  These hard fighting fish sure earn the reputation, and with miles of water to cover, side imaging can make it so much easier to find the areas these giants live in.  Terminal tackle can be quite simple, but quality heavy-duty rods with lifting power are needed to beat these heavyweights.
