Welcome to this week's episode, all about the "Girls Trip" I went on with Jen Ripple from DUN Magazine and Outdoor Girl Cheryl Smith. It was a whirlwind of a trip, but so incredibly worth it!
I drove two hours from Nashville up to Land Between the Lakes to meet up with Jen on an early Monday morning. We loaded up the truck and continued our trek north 8.5 hours to Port Clinton, OH. In retrospect, we wondered why we didn't just fly up, but I'm glad we didn't. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time!
We arrived at Bay's Edge Resort around 5pm. The first stop was over at the Bait Shop to check in to our luxurious townhome accommodations. While we were there we met acclaimed walleye spinner blade maker Tommy Harris and our Charter Guide Captain Mark Cahlik. Tommy and Mark showed us the fish in the amazing pond right there at the resort. None of us have seen bluegill so big our lives! We went out for a great dinner at a local Mexican restaurant, and after visiting for a bit back at our beautiful townhome, we went to bed early. We had an exciting day of perch and smallmouth fishing ahead on Tuesday!
You'll hear all about Day 2 in this episode. An amazing lady named Em fished with us and joined us for this episode. She has a long history in fishing. She used to fish the tournament scene as part of the Bassin' Gals trail. She was so much fun to get to know and fish with! When we got back in we did a little fishing in the pond, recorded this episode, and then went to dinner at a local winery. The food was SO GOOD!
Sooo...even though I mentioned an update in this podcast interview, you don't get to hear about Day 3 where we went trolling for walleye, BUT here's a video recap of the entire trip!
