last day and thank you

Well I took my boys out of school for the last day of the Brook Trout season and we only caught 1. We did manage to see a Bull Moose on the drive and later in the day while fishing we saw a Timber Wolf swimming in the lake. This was special as I had NEVER seen a Wolf swimming in a lake. My season was good with 273 Brook Trout in the boat with 42 over 22 inches and 4 25 inchers. I would like to thank all of my customers who fished with me this year and look forward to seeing some of you again in 2012. I also have some spots still open for next year if anyone wants a chance at a Trophy Brook Trout. More updates coming soon!!

Well I did my last group of the Brook Trout season and it was bizzare for sure. Dick and his Wife Jane came in the spring and we had snow one day!! They did catch some trophy trout and decided to come again this fall. We had severe weather for 2 days and we were chased by Water Spouts!!!!!! I had to blast wide open to stay ahead of the system and thankfully they went North. the fishing was tough as well, we only caught 7 fish. Well now you can tell the Lake Michigan boaters and fishermen that you know about water spouts!!! Dick and Jane are definatly Hardcore and I will see you next year for some more adventures.

Well I must admit that Dave and Geoff were one of my more interesting groups of the year. We had great weather and horrible fishing, but they did get a few trout. Dave was able to land a 22 inch Brookie and Geoff caught a 20.5 incher. We also caught some Pike and Walleye. What really made these guys interesting was the calibre of our conversations in the boat as we covered many topics from music, sports, history, religion, politics and more. They wre great company as I can't recall having disscused such topics without anyone getting upset as we got pretty deep and it was cool to be with guys who are so knowledgable and intelligent. Thanks guys and happy adventures in life!!!!!

Jesse, Vince,"Timmy" and "Mac"

These four guys came for a 6 day camping trip and it was a blast. The weather was good and so were the bugs. The Brook trout fishing was tough but we managed. We caught some Walleye, Pike, Perch, Whitefish and 15 Brook Trout with 23.5 inches being the biggest. Jesse caught the big one and also managed to land 3 on his new fly rod. Way to go Jesse! These guys were a real blast to guide and I really enjoyed watching these guys pitch in and help each other and get firewood. There were times when someone would miss a fish or see one and let the person who hadn't caught one yet take a cast , that is good sportsmanship in my books. You guys rock!!!!

Well we just had a Hardcore weekend of fishing Brookies as I took 4 kids winter camping they were 12,8,7,5 years old. Tyler is 12 and was my second in command and was a good helper his brother Cole is 8 and had fun. Simeon my oldest son was on his second winter camping trip and did good and Daniel my 5 year old was on his first one and did really good. I was impressed by these kids as they are tough. We caught 14 Brook Trout and Tyler caught the most (5) with the 2 biggest 16.5 inches, 16.25 inches. I was next with 4. Daniel had 3 including catching two at the same time (double hook rig) Simeon and Cole each caught 1. We missed lots too!!!!!
