Filled out the forms and sent in my data gathered
during the 2017 season for the Salmon Ambassador
program. My results were lackluster to say the
least. Averaging about .7 Kings per hour based
on a 3 hour trip with lines in the water from April
3 hours of fishing amounts to 5 hours being away
from my tackle manufacturing operation. That's
about all I can spare and still make our same day
Take into account the majority of the trips were the
evening shift that never saw the same action the
early riser sunrise fleet had.
10/15/18 Election 2018
my wife and I voted by absentee ballot. I do
not discuss, or tell my wife how to vote and we
really don't discuss what went into our envelopes.
Being married for over 50 years, one thing you never
do, is to tell any women what to do!! This is
easily understood if you put the shoe on other foot
with her telling you how to vote.
Did vote to legalize Marihuana, because you cannot
legislate morality. Our government has been
fighting this battle since the 1960s. Spending
billions of dollars on prosecuting offenders.
Not to mention the 30 some grand a year it costs to
keep pot dealers in the clink. It's time to
turn this into a revenue stream that will enrich our
state's treasury. Nope, I don't plan on buying
any pot. This kind of stuff loses it's appeal
when you're a senior citizen with important things
Fall's spectacular colors are close to their peak in
Have a great weekend!
This year's acorn crop around my place in Manistee
County, MI is very heavy. Both the white and
red oaks have dropped enough to cover the ground in
Natural food for deer will come into play with the
MDNR banning bait piles to battle CWD. This
sounds like a good idea unless you've watched deer
feeding on pine trees in the winter like I have.
Deer all suckle off the same branches. While
banning baiting sounds good. In reality, it
might slow down the spread of CWD, but it's sure not
the complete answer to this devastating problem.
10/10/18 80° days in
October are few & far between. This made my
annual trip to Pine Creek to check out the Salmon
spawning ritual extra appreciated.

Take this with a grain of salt, because it's not
very scientific. Did see a few more Kings this
year and size was up over past years going back to
Today's featured photo of Pine Creek is the exact
spot I've taken yearly photos in a 12 year time
study. Did see a few fresh run Kings too.
