Welcome New and

been able to put together so far. Please keep
in mind, there's well over 150 different pages.

fishing tips, past
results, photos, You Tube videos, Facebook posts,
tricks & how to's. Only here, are the
constantly evolving techniques to consistently catch
more & larger fish are revealed in an easy to read &

and, ...or Fishing Report?
6/27/17 "Many fish were
caught this weekend in the MCSFA tournament week. On
Wednesday we had a great turnout at Kids Fish at man
made, on Friday the Ladies classic had many boats
coming in with nice boxes of fish. On Saturday and
Sunday many fish were caught despite some sloppy
conditions on Sunday.
fished all three days and caught 15 plus fish each
day. The majority were lake trout but did catch 6
kings and 1 steelhead. My biggest King was 14.95 and
did catch a lake trout 17.75 pounds. I fished from
Onekama to Arcadia in 110 to 115 feet of water. I
have charters the remainder of the week."

The above is first hand fishing news
from well respected, Capt. Kevin Hughes who charters
out of Onekama, MI. I can add, Kings to 25
lbs. were boated in this same event.
6/26/17 Today's update
is delayed until tomorrow. Extra busy in the
shop and have not had the time to boil down the
fishing info from this past weekend's results.
I'd rather postpone then just throw out info that's
not had careful thought to verify.
Shipping orders is job one, and as fast and
possible. Amazon's success is based entirely
on getting product out the door and into the
shipper's hands ASAP. Guess what?
...this is a easy no brainer lesson I've stuck to
since I went into the tackle business in 2004.
6/25/17 Have a great
Sunday! Latest fishing reports from our
message board members say, it's Lakerville from
Onekama to Arcadia, MI. More info on the Lake
Trout is these fish are hitting clean/non attractors
rods. So, it's not like these fishermen are
targeting LTs. Salmon for now, are hard to come by
in that area.
6/24/17 This is the
weekend Manistee, MI hosts the Bud Pro/Am
Tournament. This event dates back to the 1980s
and helps generate monies for the Manistee County
Sport Fishing Association. Added boat traffic
means I'm staying onshore until next week.
6/23/17 Cannot recall
from recent memory, when we've had a stretch of rain
and thunderstorms like the last few weeks in
Manistee, MI. This has kept me dockside, when
you throw in the wind that comes with unsettled
It is essential for me to fish where "on the spot
decisions" provide a true testing platform for my
tackle. Feeling the pressure last July out of
Manistique, MI is when we put the GhostBuster
pattern to work. Reason? ...we were down to
our last couple hours of daylight and our fish take
wouldn't feed a hungry yard cat.
these 2 hours we turned a slow fishing trip into a
highly successful event. Because we needed a glow
spoon and took a chance on Mr. Ghostbuster.
The rest is history that led to this pattern being
transposed to flashers/meat rigs™ that are deadly!
