Escanaba in Da Moonlight…

Rest assured we received some odd looks as we cruised down 29 across Wisconsin with a Skeeter boat in tow. This is the time of year for staring down into the deep abyss, through an 8 inch hole.The warm temperatures  left us with no choice and off to Little Bay de Noc up in the UP we were. The goal of the trip was to boat some big walleyes with Paul Delaney from Late Eyes Sportfishing Guide Service.  For the sake of research, I had to watch the movie Escanaba in da Moonlight.  I don’t know if I wasted an hour and a half of my life or thoroughly enjoyed it.

This pretty much sums up the movie…’s worth the watch.

Now to take a quick step back, why in the world am I going to Michigan? I was fortunate enough to be able to join the team at In-Depth Outdoors as a camera operator & editor. You can catch the show on Fox Sports North  at 8am Saturday mornings. It is starting off to be nothing short of spectacular!

We left the landing early and arrived to our destination in no time. The fog blanketed the lake thicker than molasses, and seeing the bow of the boat was a challenge at times. Fortunately the fish didn’t care as James & Paul laid into some of the most beautiful golden walleyes you have seen. The average size was right around 20″ with the definite possibility of laying into some 8-10lb class eyes.


There isn’t much down time as we are headed back up north to chase walleyes through the thin ice!
