In each episode of Lunkerville Mike D spends a day's fishing with one of the show's loyal fans or forum contributors, here it's the turn of "Low Budget Hooker" Russ Thetonia. He's based in Rhode Island and takes Mike out on one of his local lakes. The Low Budget Hooker ethos, of which Russ is a disciple, is that you don't have to have a $50,000 boat to enjoy your fishing, great fun and satisfaction can be had for very little outlay. Russ actually gives a lot back to fishing, he's a moderator on the popular BassResource.com forum and also an organiser with CAST the childrens' fishing charity. Here he suggests, for a bit of fun that he and Mike change the colour of their rubber stickbait lure, every time they catch. There are plenty of Bass to be had, as well as a few Pickles or Jack Pike, so Russ is rapidly working his way through the 14 different colours in his lure box. Mike however thinks that changing the colour of his hook might be what's needed.
