Wear a mask!
can and will kill you stone cold dead!
If you do not take the necessary
precautions? Experts say the most
likely way you'll become infected is
from the air you breathe. So, wear
a mask, or at least a scarf when you
have to go shopping. Rubber, or
Nitrile gloves must be worn too.
Bleach wipes? ...make your own by making
up a strong 1 to 3 mix. Keep at
least 6' away from other people.
Treat everyone like they're infected!
Stay home. Stay safe. Better
days are coming!
Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
6/6/20 Some take ways
not mentioned on my 1st Lk. MI trip of the season
begins with as strong N bound current along
Manistee's shelf. Surface temp was 66° with
the thermocline that looked to be down around 50'.
If the wind/wave direction was not from the NW? I'd
have setup in 50' of water to know I didn't run past
Manistee's shelf 100'-150' is either hot, or cold,
not much middle ground. With the Kings being
scattered down to St. Joe, it's more luck than skill
6/5/20 Fished out of
Manistee yesterday early evening from 6pm till 8pm.
This was my first trip of the 2020 season on Lk. MI.
Reason for a short trip? ...wife became ill and
there was no need to push her towards seasick
amazing how good a GM 350 V8 runs when all cylinders
are firing. Found a bad spark plug last fall
and did a complete tune-up. Starts a lot
from the 16s S to the high 13s in 100'-150' and
didn't mark enough fish to feed a hungry barn cat.
Boats that fished the morning shift did decent on
6/4/20 Out with the old
and in with the new as my new 2020 boat launch
sticker gets installed in my truck. Looks like
the stars have lined up for an afternoon trip.
1st of the season on Lk. MI out of my home Port of
launch ramp pass
6/3/20 Bits and pieces
on the status of the 2020 early season on Kings says
15 to 20 pound fish are being caught up and down the
MI coast. From St. Joe to central Lk. MI some
fish are being caught which is an improvement over
last year at this time.
recuperating from yesterday's heavy work load of
orders. Generally, the 1st part of any month
tends to be slow with orders picking up in mid
keeping me onshore and that's OK. Don't relish
the idea of solo events with a light 3 rod spread.
Used to running 6 rods that allows for some error.
Cut that in half and you're relying a lot more on
luck than skill.
6/2/20 Squashed with
tackle orders today. Catch you tomorrow.
