Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
8/5/21 2 days ago my
fishing partner was Steve "Roscoe" B. First
met Steve in the early i2ks, possibly 1999.
This was a bonus for me, because you don't find
fishermen like him very often. Steve's passion
for fishing means, he could just as happy on a river
bank with a cane-pole and a can of worms.
Plus, he's top quality skipper on a big lake boat
It was a joy
to spend at least a morning with him catching up
recent events in both of our lives. Never lost
touch with him, talking at least once, or twice a
several Flint Steelheaders tournament with his
expertise fishing meat. Steve even put a
workforce together to make meat rigs back in 2005
that put out quality tackle. Steve has been a
plus in my life!

Lk. MI out of Manistee, MI from 6am until 9am in
miserable and sloppy 3' SW seas. My 22' 1979
Sea Ray trailer boat has a hard cut deep v hull
that's dreadful to troll out of in anything over 2'
waves. There was no way to shoot video.

Unless, you're up for bad case of motion sickness.
We did miss a
release 90' down over 140' of water (Froggie w/Grn.
Glo ST). 54° temp was 25' down that tapered
off to 41° at 100'. That's a wide playground
for the fish.

May wasn't that bad. Pulled the plug on this
outing, cause fishing is supposed fun, not extreme

Steve B. Have a lot of history with him that
goes back to the early i2ks. Including Steve
crewing for me when I was still in the charter
business. Steve's story will be expanded

tomorrow. Orders that come in today will not
be billed until we ship, probably Wednesday
8/2/21 Long time friend
of this website, Kevin D was, or is in MI's UP to
fish Stannard Rock in Lk. Superior. Forecast
wasn't favorable for the 40 mile ride. So, he
fished inshore and caught a well marked Atlantic
Salmon as a bonus.
Kevin's Lk. S Atlantic
weapon of choice was our old standby Gold Crushed
Orange Salmon Buster 4.0. This popular pattern
many consider their most effective spoon in the top
