Episode #5 of Rates & Reels with our special guest Pastor Jon Zehnder of St. Michael Lutheran Church and Saint Michael Lutheran School.

This episode we decided to mix it up and do some freshwater fishing on Lake Okeechobee targeting Largemouth Bass with our Captain Joey Berg. Pretty sure Joey knows everything about bass fishing on Lake O, but I’m biased because we are also friends.

The weather started out pretty rough, but once the rain stopped we were able to get a few hours of fishing in. We must of caught at least 30 bass on live shiners.

Looking forward to the next trip during the winter spawn next year. We will for sure be heading back for another trip.

Pastor Jon killed it during his interview where he talked about marriage, parenting and financing. Also, manages to somehow work in an Old Yeller reference. Great stuff!
