On this Fish’n Canada episode, Pete Bowman ventures to Eastern Ontario’s Merland Park Cottages on the Bay of Quinte. With the opportunity to fish the Bay’s outstanding Walleye water, Pete instead tries something new by targeting the relatively unknown Sheephead species. This is a gamble Pete will never regret!
On this Fish’n Canada episode, Pete Bowman is fishing Whitby Harbour, one of the many harbours along the north shore of Lake Ontario, where a variety of game fish populate. Instead of targeting one species, Pete decides to set his hook on anything that is hungry. As he is tormented by a pack of jacked up & crazy Chinook Salmon, a new-found population of Northern Pike keep him sane!
This episode has Angelo Viola and Roy Armes conquering bass of both species, for Roy’s last hurrah on the show as CEO & President of Cooper Tire before retirement. They connect in Young’s Point, Ontario at Clearview Cottage Resort on Clear Lake in The Kawarthas…an area instrumental to Ang’s growth as an angler. Since Roy’s stay is brief and the fishing is hot, Ang decides to stick around after Roy’s departure to reminisce and land a few more bass!
Angelo and Pete give their custom Princecraft “FNC1” a new facelift and then meet up with the “Bigwigs” from Princecraft Boats to showcase their pride and joy. As curious and eager as the Princecraft team are to see the transformed fishing craft for themselves, they would love to do some fishing too! The perfect meeting place is Kenauk Nature in the Outaouais region of Quebec. With brutal weather conditions dampening the entire trip, the boys hope they can still make a good impression with their fishing machine… and catch some fish too!
On this episode, we highlight the inaugural Canada Carp Cup Classic tournament, held in Long Sault, on the banks of the famous St. Lawrence River. This World Carp Classic qualifier event is the first of its kind, and had both highs and lows throughout the two rigorous days of fishing…with the ultimate high being the 2 winners catching OVER 1800 pounds of Carp… yup you read that right!
Pete travels to some of Ontario’s most northerly Largemouth Bass waters, the St. Mary’s River, near Sault Ste. Marie in Algoma Country. It’s October, the water is hovering just above 50 degrees, and the fall colours surrounding this great fishing destination are in full peak. Question is… are the Bass in full peak feeding mode? Pete ends this show with a quick trip to the St. Mary’s “rapids” and tries his hand at the world-renowned Steelhead and Rainbow fishery.
Angelo heads to the province of New Brunswick with good buddy and Muskie fishing nut Steve Niedzwiecki (owner of Chaudiere Lodge, Upper French River), as they seek Canada’s number one predator… the Muskellunge. You read it correctly, there “are” Muskie in NB and they are thriving in the waters of the Saint John River… one problem though, in this water they’re considered an invasive species and many of the old school locals want them eradicated! Ang and Steve try to bring new light to this magnificent sport fish and open up the eyes to the entire country saying “these Muskie are here to stay, so let’s embrace and take full advantage of this relatively new and exciting east-coast fishery”!
Pete heads to Lake Muskoka in search of three species of fish; Walleye, Northern Pike, and Smallmouth Bass. In this geographical area of the rich and famous, little is said about the fishing… in fact it’s almost unheard of. Pete hopes to open up the country’s eyes to this phenomenal, yet oddly unknown fishery.
Angelo’s grandson Nik returns to the show in a bigger way than ever… he’s Muskie fishing on the upper French River. This time however, there’s no “grandpa” to aid Nik through the ups, downs, and everything in-between that’s encountered on a Muskie adventure. Ang sends a very “green” Nik out with Pat Tryon, one of the best Muskie guides in all of Ontario. Will Nik succeed in his first term of learning Muskie 101… Will Pat be deemed Fish’n Canada’s official Muskie professor… Or will they both drop to their knees in defeat by the fish of 10,000 casts?
Angelo returns to British Columbia’s Long Mountain Lake with revenge in his mind (from the previous year’s butt kicking), and a good luck charm in his corner… that’s Pete! They take on a school of Lake Trout that will blow your mind… every fish is a giant that pulls like a tractor! It’s an entire episode of massive fish!!!
Pete takes his son Hunter on a Carp adventure “extraordinaire” to Lakeside Cottages on Katchewanooka Lake. Hunter soon learns that in order to catch the biggest fish of his life, it will take a world of patience. Will “the kid” have it… Pete has his doubts!
Ang’s grandson Nik, as well as Pete’s son Hunter, return to the airwaves years after their television debut. Now teenagers, the “kids” move to the next level by having Ang & Pete teach them some refined fishing techniques. Will they pass with flying colours? And if so, will they get to finally fish on their own? Only time will tell.
Angelo and Pete meet up with good friend and fishing guide Ryan Flaro, who guarantees they will catch Muskie on Lake St. Francis in 5 minutes. The boys are skeptical of catching ‘the fish of 10,000 casts’ that quickly, especially when they are armed with only Bass gear. Little do they know that Ryan will come through as promised, and they will catch the biggest Muskie of their lives!
