Yellowknife Bay in May
This episode kicks off a brand-new season of Maximum Limit Fishing, as Canadian master angler Maxim Bloudov goes looking for big Predators in the Northwest territories. It’s May, and while the big lakes are still frozen over, the Yellowknife River has finally thawed out ready for fishing.

Small Creek Pike
The fishing gets crazy in this episode of Maximum Limit Fishing, as host Maxim Bloudov goes creek fishing for Pike in the Northern Territories of Canada.
