(Feb. 2015 News Release) EXTREME ANGLER TV TO FILM AT MARTEN RIVER LODGE
While Marten River is reputed for its excellent walleye (pickerel) fisheries, Karl will be targeting small mouth bass which are also abundant in our rivers and lakes. Bass season opens each year on the fourth Saturday in June and fish become extremely active after the spawn. With warmer waters, July bass fishing is some of the best fishing as bass can be found in shallow waters.
“The Marten River water system is a great bass fishery with its 24 kilometers (15 miles) of water and 4 significant lakes. There’s lots of natural cover and structure for bass and that’s where we’ll be focusing our game plan” says Karl. “Plus, we know that Marten River Lodge runs a very extensive guided remote lake fishing program with a number of high-producing bass lakes. We plan to get out to at least one of those lakes while we’re there.”
Now in its 14th season, Extreme Angler TV is broadcast to over 50 million household subscribers throughout Canada and the US.
Now entering its 82nd operating season, Marten River Lodge is celebrating the 90th anniversary of its main lodge, dining and cabin 6 buildings which were originally built in 1925. “Our long history, heritage wilderness setting and serious fishing tradition present some great anecdotal elements for Karl to integrate into his show that will help highlight the total MRL experience to his audience”, says owner Ray Sapiano.”
Marten River Lodge is the premier fishing and hunting lodge in the Temagami region catering to sportsmen, outdoor enthusiasts and their families. We offer a broad range of all-inclusive Housekeeping and American Plan adventure packages. Earlier this year, MRL launched a partnership with Lakeland Airways to offer its guests new fly-in fishing adventures to 4 different lakes for bass and pike beginning this season, adding to its menu of Ultimate Outdoor Adventures
