Re: Rivers near boyne

Honestly, I think their should be bans on all Michigan rivers info on the net. There's too many catch and kill people ruining rivers. We have a rule in the U.P. that you do not mention rivers...

Re: Rod weight recommendation for michigan salmon

I use a 7 weight, but it's a 10 foot. The ten foot gives you better control on your drift and better feel overall. I would suggest an 8 or 9 weight, but try to get a 10 foot rod, which will be much...

Re: need advice: michigan trip in fall

Re: Tips on fishing Clouser Minnows

If it's only 3 to 5 feet deep, you technically don't need a sinking tip line or a sinking line if the current isn't heavy. I use quite a few streamer patterns. I will put up some links to a few...

Re: Upper Peninsula Spring Steelhead Video 2013

Re: Upper Peninsula Spring Steelhead Video 2013

I'm not trying to make waves so to speak, but I do comment on threads.

I have never once posted photos with my business name on them.

Sorry you feel so strongly.
