The World Fishing Network’s Mark Melnyk took his Reel Road Trip show to Kenora, Ontario, earlier this winter to go ice fishing on Lake of the Woods with—who else?—Outdoor Canada’s very own Fishing Editor, Gord Pyzer.
Along with one of Gord’s fishing buddies, local guide Ryan Haines, they spent a couple of days running-and-gunning for a variety of species, including whitefish, walleye and lakers. And boy, did they catch fish.
The resulting action-packed show, slated to air next winter, will complement Gord’s planned ice-fishing special for our Winter 2010 issue, and vice versa. In the meantime, you can watch a teaser on what to expect at the World Fishing Network Web site.
Plans are also afoot for Mark Melnyk to likewise team up with some of Outdoor Canada’s other field editors across the country to shoot further episodes of his Reel Road Trip.
