The grass is always greener on the other side”… this is a saying that has been around for many years and we as people tend to believe it on an almost daily basis. Now fishermen… WELL… we take it to the extreme. If our quarry isn’t voraciously schooling up and inhaling everything we are throwing at them, then we’ve gotta’ move.
Nowhere else in the world will you find such a vast array of color, shape, and of course size, as you will with Lake Trout in Canada. This fishing Mecca has posted, held and broke more world record Lakers than anywhere else on the globe! So it’s pretty obvious this episode is all about Lake Trout… big… nasty… carnivorous… Lakers.
“To me” says Pete “opening day is like New Year’s Day: full of resolutions and promises. In my case, it’s pretty simple: set the tone for the season right now – go big or go home! Boating a five pound plus Smallie or even one approaching a six in the next day and a half, here, in this well-known bass fishery, would set a benchmark for the next 5+months”.
We’re going to try something that will hopefully appeal to anglers who aren’t so specific about their fish, and show them what a blast they can have fishing these bucket mouthed powerhouses in the junk, with medium spinning rods and reels, light braided line and soft stick-baits.
Angelo Viola and Pete Bowman team up with the Beasley Brothers from the Canada in the Rough hunting show where they take separate adventures “hunting” for the ultimate freshwater predator, the Muskie. Featuring additional footage from our friends at Slobland Flicks.
For this episode we decided to do a show on carp fishing… it’s not our first and it definitely won’t be our last. Although Ang and Pete wouldn’t call themselves experts, they do feel they are gaining valuable knowledge with every season that passes. The beauty of Carp fishing is it opens up a whole new world to them.
If there was ever a guarantee in fishing, a sure fire one would be that Canada is home to the best Northern Pike fishing in the world. They can be found in every province and they can grow to monstrous proportions.
For this episode Angelo headed to the province of Saskatchewan and in particular Lake Athabasca, a water body known for its giant Pike.
f you are ever looking to watch a bizarre or unique fishing episode then this may very well be the ultimate. This adventure took Angelo Pike fishing up to Agich’s Kaby Kabins on Kabinakagami Lake in the Algoma region of Ontario.
Pete headed up to the White River Air Base in the Algoma district of Ontario and was brought in as a “hired gun” by Dan and Brandi MacLachlan of WWA. They are looking for different lakes to possibly open up for future outpost camps. This may be the ultimate gig… scouting a lake and shooting it for television.
