Episode #371 Late Fall St. Clair Muskie

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

After a run down the highway in the RAM, Charlie Joins up with Captain Jim Fleming of Drifter 2 Charters.  Muskie fishing can be challenging and today it’s cold and windy but the guys do everything to put the odds in their favour.  Weeds are always a problem but snap on weights can do an amazing job at keeping the baits clean, and the Muskies hitting.  Planner boards are needed to spread the lures away from the boat, and line counter reels sure make it easier to repeat what worked the first time! Persistence does pay off.
