I got a call from Craig at Erie Outfitters on Monday offering me a once in a lifetime experience. He explained that Matt Straw and a camera man from In-Fisherman was in town with Bass Pro and lure designer/manufacturer Ron Perrine. Unfortunately for them, and fortunately for me, the guy that was supposed to take them out on Lake Erie was MIA, and they needed a guy with a Lund boat equipped with a Mercury motor. Being a fan of the show and magazine for as long as I can remember, I jumped at the opportunity. I got to go out and fish and hang out with them for the last four days. They were doing a piece on perch and smallmouth. We caught some of each, along with a bazillion sheephead, a few walleyes, and even a tagged smallie. We also had retired Bass Pro Jerry Meyers fishing along side us in his boat. It was pretty cool to see how they film the shows. They seemed to catch on to my brand of humor about the second day.
