Default Winter Steelhead on the Stink, Round 2

The Manistique River is STILL producing top notch winter fishing for Lake Michigan Steelhead. I fished with Chris G. today and it was outstanding! We landed 4 beautiful fish. Estaz Eggs and streamers brought hits on a gorgeous February sunday. I landed a 3+ pound hen on a bright pink Estaz Egg and a big Steelie broke my ten pound liter when he took off with my bright green and white streamer. Chris was slaying them in an upstream pool, he landed 3 fish; a nice looking 3 pound male and a couple skippers. He also hooked numerous other fish! What a day!! Pictured below; my only fish landed and Chris doing his laundry room audition of the Lord Of The Dance. His leaky waders gave us some goofing around time in the local laundrymat. I always like fishing in Manistique, the local anglers (and people) are always friendly and very courteous. 02/06/11.

Congrats on the nice fish! Looks like you and Chris had a great day on the water, minus the leaky waders!
