2 weeks ago our female AKC/CKC Chocolate Lab, Kat
gave birth to 10 Chocolate Labradoodle puppies.
The sire/father was from our CKC Chocolate Standard
Poodle, Buster. These are CKC registered dogs and
have their litter registration in-hand.
Kat is one of the smartest, most obedient Labs and
has the best cost of all the Labs we've owned since
1983. So, we know Labs from experience.
Buster is our 1st Standard Poodle and is a fine dog
in his own right.

Around the middle of October these pups will be
ready for their new homes. Right now, they
weigh about 2 1/2 pounds and all have a stunning
shiny Chocolate coat like their mom. Both
parents are DNA tested. We have 3 males and 6
females left at this time.
Mentioned back on the 19th about the changing of the
guard in MDNR that will probably happen after this
November's election when a new governor is sworn in.
Potential incoming new fisheries chief will have his
own course of action that might bode well for us.
don't have a crystal ball when it comes to the bait
population in LK. MI, but do know there's been
plenty of it off the Port of Manistee, MI. Do
know increased stocking does not translate into more
fish. Seen this fail in the late 1980's BKD
So, I predict we'll see a small increase on the King
stocking levels for most MI ports in the next year,
Summer 2018 officially ends tonight as Fall 2018
will be here tomorrow. Why does summer go by
so fast and winter last so long? This is an
unanswerable question, because in Manistee, MI we
get 6-7 months of pretty decent weather. Rest
no so much!
Guess the important thing is we made it thru another
hectic summer rush when we get crushed with orders
for no worse the wear. July and August is when
we sell the most tackle. Not quite exceeding
what's done in the other 10 months.
Seen lots of people not able to handle the increased
pressure like deckhands and employees that get a few
bucks ahead and decide to get lazy and quit.
Lazy don't work if you're reel serious about fishing
Finished a 10 page website that will debut this
coming Monday. While it's on the web now, know
more re-writes and proof reading is in order.
Big S blow on Lk. MI today. Wind howled all
night long at my place.
This fall's election will usher in a new governor in
the State of MI. This probably means a shake
up at MDNR with new leadership. I'm in the
hopes a new fishery chief will look more favorably
on Lk. MI Salmon fishery and increase the stocking
Current MDNR Fisheries Chief, Dexter has cut the
Chinook/King plants to all time lows. Agreeing
that the State of MI plants less Salmon than WI
according tom the information I read a while back.
Fair is fair, but allowing any state not to share in
the pie equally goes against the founding principals
of our country!
East Chicago, IN is still producing a few Kings
according to website member, Tom M. Know
exactly where he fishing and that has to be all warm
water. Catching adult Kings on meat in warm water and
Pike is a skill set I've yet to master.

My season is on hold for a while. Plan on more
trips in October when Lk. MI Steelhead become more
plentiful. Still plenty of season left for the
