Episode 0 | New Year’s Special

Not your “typical” fishing show, eE thrives on the unexpected, the happenings in-between takes, which is what sets Erie Extreme™ apart from other sporting reality shows. There are no scripts, no rules, and no shortage of fun.

Episode 1 | Misery on Ice

Anxious to hit the ice after a long bout of cabin fever, Dave searches to find the first safe ice in the area. After a few days of scouting, he locates just the place, and is the first crazy fisherman to walk on Misery Bay, well…almost!

Episode 2 | Ice Breakers

Dave has never caught a fish on a fly rod, hard to imagine. Though the absolute worst time and conditions possible, old friend, Karl Weixelmann, steps up to the challenge. Dave and Karl hit Elk Creek early on a 10 degree day praying for open water and a few off season fish.

Episode 3 | Cold Bronze

Right in our host's wheelhouse, this should be easy right? Join Dave and a couple friends as they attempt to get out on the big lake in search of giant cold water smallmouth bass. But it's the middle of winter and all the ramps are frozen, not to mention an approaching storm looms.

Episode 4 | Blood in the Water

You could say Dave has officially caught fly rod fever. Jeff Blood and boys from AnglrTech.net make the short trek north from Pittsburgh to attempt to help Dave find a big stream Brown Trout. The timing isn't perfect, but Jeff has high hopes as fish have been seen recently where they plan to go!

Episode 5 | The Bass Belt

Episode 7 | Night Eyes Part 1

As great as Pymatuning Lake walleye fishing can be in the spring, Dave and Danny have never experienced it. Alabama is a long way from Jamestown, PA, but it's hammertime and Dave's buddy, Jimmy, knows Pymatuning walleyes. But will they ever get on the water?

Episode 8 | Night Eyes Part 2

In part 1, due to technical difficulties, Jimmy, Danny and Dave never made a single cast into the lake. Pymatuning Lake is full of walleyes and the boys are hungry! Can Jimmy put them in the right spot in the dark, or will mechanical issues trump their fishing and fish fry plans yet again?

Episode 9 | A Crappie Challenge Part 1

Catching 5 crappies should be fairly easy this time of year, but this tough Extreme Facebook Challenge presents some unexpected obstacles that could send Dave into a serious tailspin! 5 crappies from 5 lakes in 6 hours…can he possibly pull this off?

Episode 10 | A Crappie Challenge Part 2

With only 2 ½ hours left of a 6 hour Facebook Challenge, Dave has to catch 3 more crappies from 3 different lakes. In this part 2, Edinboro, LeBoeuf and Findley Lakes are in the Erie Extreme team's sites. This one comes right down to the wire!
