Episode 49
Bay de Noc at Night
Show Date: December 5th & 6th, 2009
Location: Bay de Noc; Gladstone, Michigan
Guide: Steve Miljat: [414-791-9496 | miljat.com]


It's our annual night bite fishing adventure up on Bay de Noc out of Gladstone Michigan.  Steve Miljat is our guide, navigating us through the dark for trophy walleyes.  Steve is taking us out on a guide trip, and his guide customer Brian Banach, is our special guest.  We are tolling using planer boards at about 1 to 2 miles per hour.  The reason that Steve takes us out at night is because the water is very clear, and these walleyes are easily spooked.  It’s a fantastic night of fishing, and Steve will be guiding until the landing freezes up this year. 

 

 

Episode 50
Extended Muskie Season
Show Date: December 12th, & 13th, 2009
Location: Waukesha County, Wisconsin
Guide: Dennis Radloff, Sterling Guide Service: [262-443-9993 | sterlingmusky.com]
It’s the first year of the southern Wisconsin extended muskie season.  Dennis Radloff is taking us out to experience this unique opportunity, that runs through the end of the year.  Also joining us is John Koeller, our Mills Fleet Farm Grand prize winner, who won a trip with us for a trophy catch he entered into our fishing contest.  
This extended season is only for the southern half of the state of Wisconsin, south of highway 10, and runs through December 31st.  Dennis tells us that late fall has always been a good time of year to fish, but always had to stop at the end of November.  With the extended season, we are able to capitalize on the hot sucker bite like never before.  We are dragging suckers along the shoreline, working deep break lines in 15 to 30 feet of water.  We also have John Koeller in the front of the boat vertical jigging a Fuzzy Duzzit to lure in the esox to our suckers.

Episode 51
First Ice!
Show Date: December 19th & 20th, 2009
Location: Ely, MN/Central, WI
Guides: Matt Bichanich [Uncle Josh Baits]; 
Pro Ice Guide Larry Smith [920-361-4996 | walleyeguide.com]
It is FINALLY that time of year where we can step out of the boat and on to ice.  2009 has been a tumultuous year for weather, and it isn’t over yet.  We travel to the very northern city of Ely Minnesota looking for ice, and we do.  It can be a challenge looking for safe ice early in the season, and we can’t stress enough, be safe and check the ice before you go out.  In our case, the ice was only good along the shorelines, so we couldn't go all the way out where we wanted to.  Nonetheless, it is always great to get onto the ice for the first time.
Since we couldn’t get out where we wanted to in Ely, Larry Smith invited us out for an afternoon crappie bite on a small lake that had good ice on it.

 

Episode 52
Larry’s Petenwell Party
Show Date: December 26th, &27th, 2009
Location: Petenwell Flowage, Adams County, WI
Guide:  Pro Ice Guide Larry Smith [920-361-4996 | walleyeguide.com]

It’s our last show for 2009, and topping off the year with a great day on the Petenwell flowage.  We are setting tip-ups in depths ranging from 5 to 25 feet, and are jigging everywhere in-between.  As the Petenwell goes, we are fishing for whatever bites, but are after the giant walleyes that we found there this summer.  Using GPS points that we plotted while we were on open water, we are able to set up our spread in the best area.

 We have a great crowd out with us, and the first one to the flag gets the fish.   Our fishing crew is eager to pull in a monster, so we don’t have a problem getting to the hole on time once the flag goes up.
