Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
1/22/17 1st month of
official winter is done. With January on the way
out, this extended warm spell has allowed me to catch up
on painted spoons. These were in short supply.
My job is all about time management and planning.
Having time freed up allows for out of town fishing
events that I'm looking forward to.
Going to new areas presents reel-knowledge to be filed
away for future reference. Getting out of your
comfort zone always leads to better things!
1/21/17 Best part of 50
degrees for Manistee, MI today! This is exactly
what we need to stave off a complete freeze over in Lk.
MI. Open water provides more sunlight penetration
that keeps the whole food chain going.
My season begins in about 7 weeks when I head to the S
end of Lk. MI for the early season Coho fishery down by
Chicago. Lots to do so I can take a few days off!

Time expenditure on
my new article is a lot. Putting thoughts down in
print is only one part of this effort. Working
with the 13 photos in this new work requires captions to
tie things together is another part of the time
invested. Formatting is the fun part any article,
but it's time consuming. Getting to chose the
layout is what I like best!
Here's where the internet pays dividends when compared
to paper magazine print articles. Having info at
your finger tips with a click can't be beat!
