11/17/17 There is no
instant gratification in tackle manufacturing.
There's not one project (flashers, meat-heads, &
spoons) I've completed that has not taken at least 6
months, or longer. 1000s of dollars are
involved, so you have to triple check everything.
The colorants we use come from 3 different
continents. Some are known as, rare earths and
are very expensive. Communicating across the
world is a slow day, by day process. Where
each question takes a day, maybe 2 for a reply.
There's where I am now, pushing slowly ahead, but

11/16/17 Cold wet and
windy as we get closer to full blown winter.
Busy with get materials in-house for the 2018
season. The close of my 2017 season has been
anticlimactic. Not ending as I hoped.
Still a slim chance I'll get one more whack at the
fish before I hang it up. Not having a
last/ending trip is frustrating.
11/15/17 Firearms deer
season is today. This opener has lost some of
it's glory to bow hunting. Everyone I know,
who owns a crossbow has already got their buck. Crossbows are deadly accurate out to 40
yards, maybe more.

11/14/17 Good luck and
have a safe hunt for tomorrow's opening day for
firearms deer season in MI. Successive mild
winters have helped the deer herds around my place.
Was hoping to have all colors of meat heads back in
stock by December 1st. Delays in getting
colorants have pushed this back till early next
year. Some of the colorant we use are special
order and that takes time.
11/13/17 In about 11
months, I'll be celebrating my 50th anniversary of
being a Great Lakes Salmon and Trout fisherman.
Back in the late 1960s and early 1970s seen 1000s of
Coho on the surface ...porpoise all over E Platte
Bay N of Frankfort, MI.
These were the days when the MDNR invested heavily
in this new fishery. Back then, they used to
stock/plant the Platte River with a 1,000,000 or
Great Lakes Salmon fishing has provided me with a
lifetime rich with memories of the glory days.
Good thing? ...you never know, if these days are
going return again!
11/11/17 Veterans Day
that carries a special meaning to those of us when
family members served on the armed forced like my
father did in WWII. The courage to put your
life on the line to serve our country should never
be forgotten. Have a great weekend!

turned into hard winter with snow and temps in the
