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

exactly where he fishing and that has to be all warm

My season is on hold for a while. Plan on more
trips in October when Lk. MI Steelhead become more

Communication comes in many forms nowadays.
Back in the days of 1968 when I began fishing the
Great Lakes, we were all learning how to catch
Salmon. There was no baseline established.
We got our information face to face from fishermen
that were successful. And it was shared openly
with great camaraderie.
In the mid 1970s CB radio were on most boats.
Talking boat to boat was a great step forward.

Bradley Sr. communicated openly with other charter
boats. Pro info being shared with the entire
fleet, yes. Listening the charter skippers
handed you the whole ball game.
What a change from today where good info has went
underground thru cell phones. Marine band
radio traffic today does not carry the importance it
Let's not forget the internet that has a wealth of
information when you visit the right sites.
Now, all the tools to be successful are out there to
be snatched up.
Postponed until later today if time allows...

has to be dealt with between now and Christmas.
Happy Friday, enjoy what's left of summer by making
time for yourself!
Let's see, in the left border Montana to Canada and
points in between are covered with catch photos.
This shows how universal fishing is. Fishing
transcends race, religion, politics, language and
gender. This is a great common denominator for
People that passionately like to fish do not attack
