Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
8/28/16 Have a great Sunday.
Should have some fishing news for you tomorrow.
8/27/16 Traditionally, when
it comes to Lk. MI Salmon fishing the last week of
August and the first week in September show the best
numbers of the season.
Gone are the days of searching for elusive, scattered
fish. These fish are homing- in on rivers to spawn.
Putting the odds in your favor of intersecting them.
With any luck, early this coming week should be able to escape
from the tackle manufacturing business long enough to get some lines
wet. It's been 17 days and counting since I put a good box
together and that's way-way too long!
T.G.I.F. today! Just concluded the busiest week of
the 2016 season for my tackle shop. Shipping
orders has kept me out of the loop when it comes to
meaningful fishing info from my home port of Manistee,
8/25/16 Salmon Buster™
spoons catch a variety of fish. Know these Lexan™
spoons are deadly on Lk. MI Kings and Steelhead.
That's an established reel-fact.
Now, these spoons are making a name for themselves on
Smith-Lewis Lake/impoundment not far from Birmingham, AL
for freshwater Stripers!
The 2016 hot pattern has been the GhostBuster that was
named long before the movie came out. Seems Mr.
Striper likes it ...as much as our Kings.
It's wonderful to see what universal fishing communities
do and catch. From Salmon in Alaska, to Lk. Erie
Walleyes, to Lk. Ontario Kings & all points in-between,
my patent pending spoons are catching fish!
8/24/16 All the Lk. MI DNRs
are proving they're playing politics in the fullest
measure. Meaning you come out with way more than
you want and settle more towards the middle.
They have walked back the proposed MI's Lk. MI King
Salmon cuts from 64% to 46%. OK, all well fine,

What I do not understand? ...is why WI gets the largest
piece of the pie, while MI has a lot more shoreline of
Lk MI. This is wrong. Everyone should be
treated the same. Showing preferential treatment
to any one state is pure unadulterated BS!
8/23/16 Have no current fish
reports to work with. This past weekend's high
winds, rain and thunderstorms kept everyone I know
Did a little more research about Ketchikan, AK.
It's the southern most area of Alaska to fish.
Several hundred miles S of Anchorage. This port
has a 3 weekend Salmon Derby with caveat qualifying
Kings must be caught during specified weekend time &
The winning King in their 2016 derby weighed 48 pounds &
change. 30 pounders fairly commonplace. This
is what my dreams are made of. Big Kings in their
native ocean environment is a new horizon for me to
