Pros flock to Sudbury

The Fish TV crew packed up and headed up to the French River to film a new episode. The area has so much to offer and the fishing is second to none, with world-class muskie, great walleye, crappie and a great number of big smallmouth and largemouth bass.

We always love the Bear’s Den Lodge our home away from home. The accommodations are fantastic and our wonderful hosts, Art and Brenda, prepare homecooked meals that are to die for! You will never go hungry, that’s for sure.

We arrived with our Lund boat and launched at Hartly Bay Marina. The guys there are fantastic, they put your boat in the water and park your vehicle for you, so there are no worries about leaving your truck or car there for as long as you stay. Bear’s Den also has a great variety of rental boats in case you don't have one.

We have done several shows on the French River and every time it has been great. This year we hit a cold front and some rain but it still produced fish... largemouth was the target and we did get quite a few, even a couple in the four to five-pound range. If you are looking for an experience of a lifetime with good fishing, delicious food and fantastic people, look at Bears Den on the French River. You won’t be disappointed!
