Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
10/3/23 Capt. Dan S. from Big Dan's
Charters in Soldotna, AK ordered more 12" flashers
from me. He said, in today's featured photo,
"I've caught more then 40 Salmon in the last 2 days"
...running 12 incher with a spoon.

Know it works, just don't see many in the Great
Lakes doing it. Flasher in the photo has held
up OK after 5 seasons of saltwater Pacific Ocean
Soldotna, AK is home port for the legendary Kenai
River over 50 lb. Kings
10/2/23 Leaves are coming down and the
Salmon are coming up in the tributaries of Lk. MI
tells us October is here. This month presents
some of the best big water fishing of the year when
the wind gods take the day off. Finding calm
seas is October is rare.
Those 2 and 3 year Kings I've been seeing in photos
is super news for next year. These juvi Kings
should be available throughout this month with lots
of Steelhead. My best hours for fish in the
boat came in 1994 when my customers boated 28 Salmon
and Steelhead in under 2 hours based on lines-in to

9/29/23 Great stretch of summer like
weather thru the middle of next week makes this a
perfect time to get a head start on fall projects.
Mine is stacking 12 face cords to prep for winter.
Once that's done, need to make Strip Teezers™ in
frog and green glow.
9/28/23 DIY projects are usually one-off
issues. Doing it a second time is a piece of
cake, because you have it figured out. Trailer
bunk job was self-explanatory. Just a lot of grunt
work swing 16' 2 by 6s.

Fixing my Generac home generator was a 1/2 hour job.
Plus, a half day on the web researching to diagnose
the problem that confirmed a faulty time delay fuse
failed. That took some doing, but it's back up
and running like a champ now.
jobs out at times can save a lot of grief depending
on where you live. Living in rural MI there's
no Generac service techs for my area.
9/27/23 It's nice to see Steelhead mixed
in with Kirk's catch. Along with future Kings
this fall's Lk. MI fishery should go gangbusters.
While the out-door's public is shifting to hunting,
late season big water fishing can offer the best
opportunities for EZ limits.
Tomorrow's focus will turn back towards DIY projects
with a photo of the cracked stringers on a main
support truss. Glad I fixed this problem
before it broke and pierced a hole in the hull.
Fixing stuff for me is a never-ending journey.
9/26/23 Fishing off Ludington, MI has been
respectable as today's photo from Capt. Kirk proves.
4 Salmon & a double digit Steelhead is a nice reward
for an am 1/2 day fish.
The juvenile Kings in this photo is our future
fishery that's looking better and better all the
time. 2023 has been all good from the git-go.
