TV Time For Fort Peck Fishing Across Midwest

Jason Mitchell of the outdoor program Jason Mitchell Outdoors recently filmed a fishing segment on Fort Peck Lake. The show will highlight the trophy walleye fishing that make the lake famous.

Television host Jason Mitchell shows the giant walleye he caught on Fort Peck Lake with his fishing buddy, Ken Schmidt, right, of Glasgow.

It is expected to be broadcast in April and June.

"For trophy walleyes, Fort Peck remains one of the top destinations in the country and one of the best places I can think of for walleyes that are over 30 inches," Mitchell said.

Mitchell fished during the production with Glasgow angler Ken Schmidt.

"Ken and I grew up fishing together and actually used to fish some tournaments together, so we go back a long ways," Mitchell said.

The anglers worked deep main lake structure with bottom bouncers and live bait rigs in 20 to 28 feet of water. Several giant walleyes were landed on camera.
