Viewer Feedback for "Sucessful Salmon and Trout Trolling" -

"I just got the DVD today and watched it is excellent!!!. I am relatively new to Great Lakes salmon/trout fishing and am looking forward to my fourth season fishing out of Two Rivers, WI. I've got to tell you that I have learned more in 1 hour watching your video than I have in 3 seasons of fishing. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Now I am REALLY looking forward to this season. I can't wait to put some of your tips into action."

"I saw the new DVD last week for the first time. It has a similar format to the seminars that Bill Bale and Dave Engel have been giving for the past few years. The difference is there is some on the water footage and diagrams that you never see in their seminars. Overall I would give it a high rating. There is a lot of information on the techniques and methods that they use to win tournaments in the DVD."

"It was better than I expected. The section on splicing copper wire was worth the price alone."

"I watched it this morning and thought it was very well was interesting to see some of the small differences in the way they rig things....and they run heavier mono...which is similar to the way we run things on Lake Ontario."
