The Pacific Northwest is not known for largemouth bass fishing, but despite this, there is some of the best largemouth fishing in the USA to be found there. Cody was on the bass fishing team at college, and in this episode he meets up with an old teammate for some springtime sport. They focus on pre-spawn fish, using a variety of patterns to maximise their chances. Cody takes the time to explain why they fish the areas that they do, and why they chose their tactics.
Cody’s visiting the steelheading Mecca of the Olympic Peninsular and he’s got one thing on his mind – to catch an elusive 20lb steeler. Along the way he looks at what techniques can help when fishing unfamiliar water, what to look for when searching out a fishing spot, and how to negotiate rapids when drifting in an unfamiliar river.
American Lake Kokanee
Cody's heading to the Seattle area for some springtime fishing for Kokanee. He meets up with the local experts on American Lake to find out what works for these picky lake salmon, including the man known as the 'Kokanee Kid'. After a day to practice, the gloves come off and its time for a fish-off - which of the experts will triumph?
