Caution this footage is likely to cause angler envy and perch shrinkage. Warning! Watch at your own risk! This episode may contain brief periods of uncontrolled excitement, hollering, jumping for joy and other forms of monster fish induced psychosis. On a more serious note this was most likely the biggest perch fishing day I've ever experienced in my life. What a great day on the ice. Check out the show and pick up a few quick tips on the way. Thanks for watching.
Fall is a great time of year to get out on the water and enjoy some shallow water pike fishing. Since the water has cooled off the Big fish have moved up into the shallow water from their deep water haunts of the summer. These fish are hungry and feeding heavily before the freeze. Casting and trolling large swimbaits, crankbaits and spoons can put you into a whole bunch of fish. Target shallow bays, rocky points, weed and reed beds for the best fall action.
Short video of Moraine Lake (Lac Moraine), Alberta. This lake is located 11kms from Lake Louise. It is much more intimate - as it lacks a huge, foreign-owned hotel. Boating available. Food on site - but it's bloody expensive.
Fishing with the family in a 12 foot aluminum Springbok and 9.9 HP Johnson. Sure doesn't take much to have a whole lot of fun. In the age of high tech fancy everything you can still catch fish with a small boat and a big heart! Check out the action from a summer day in July out on the water. We were slamming the walleye and caught a few perch and pike as the sun drifted low on the horizon. I love summer evening fishing on a calm lake!
Sometimes searching for perch pays off. Go on the hunt for them early in the year and you may just be into them all season long. Another great lure is the Kastmaster while fishing for those winter perch. It has great action and a lot of flash. The chrome and blue seems to work best in Alberta and the Gold is also a great option if you're after Jumbo Perch.
