Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
2/20/17 Happy Monday! 4
weeks from today is the official start of spring.
This warm weather has me thinking a lot about the almost
here, 2017 season. Plans are in the works for my
first big lake trip barely 3 weeks away. Stay
tuned, it's a goodie!
Best thing I like about fishing? ...as soon as I step on
the boat, life's wearisome issues seems melt away.
Not to resurface until my boat is on the trailer, headed
For me, it's an ultimate escape that provides a reset to
life's ups and downs. Especially, adrenalin rush
when we hear the words, "fish-on" that sets everything
2/19/17 Have a great Sunday.
2/18/17 Hit 50° in Manistee,
MI yesterday. More of the same is in store for us
Mr. O. M. Winter is being nice to us and is on vacation
thru most of next week!
Was in Traverse City, MI yesterday afternoon. Lk.
MI's West Traverse Bay is completely open water with no
ice. I have no doubt boats will be on the prowl
Cease the moment and take advantage of this warm spell
that going to last for the best part of a week. I
will be working on my boat trailer later today after
shipping orders. Presidents Day is this
Monday and that means next USPS ship date is Tuesday.
2/17/17 Temps in the mid 40s
this weekend opens up a lot of opportunities. My
days will be dedicated getting my boat trailer in
super-ready long haul mode.
Trouble free towing means tire air pressures must be up
to snuff. Both for safety and fuel mileage.
Wheel bearings will get a light tap of grease, careful
not to over-pressure that can take out bearing seals.
Checking torque on the wheel lugs will not be
overlooked. Surge brake fluid will get checked and
topped off too. Then, mount a tool box on the boat
trailer to carry tools/parts necessary for tire changes
and wheel bearing swaps.
matter how much you plan, breakdowns are always a
possibility. Being prepared for any eventuality
saves times and days that will be spent on the water.
2/16/17 MDNR's free fishing
weekend is this Saturday and Sunday. Reel good
news for Steelhead river fishermen with the forecast
highs in the 40s for my neck of the woods. Ice
fishermen? ...please use extra caution to make sure the
ice is safe.
Any orders received after 5am will not be shipped today.
Bookkeeper has a hold on the special accountant's file
in QuickBooks to resolve things I do not fully
understand. That's why I have a hired accountant
to keep the books on the up and up.
