If you do not take the necessary

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

Today's Update and, ...or Fishing Report?
10/26/20 Mysteries are
many with our Great Lakes Salmon fishery.
Mystery 1: where did the down temp 38° to 44° vanish
to? Used to be able to build a nice box of
Kings by fishing well below the thermocline.
Haven't seen any of these in 3-4 years.
Mystery 2: The MDNR decided to put all their
eggs in one basket and focus on the Kings.
Instead of having a balanced fishery where other
species were just as important. Now there's no
Brown Trout. Steelhead are hard to come by.
There is some Coho around, but even that's crap
shoot hit and miss.
Will be installing a new poll soon where you can
grade the MDNR Fisheries Division on their job
performance pertaining to the stocking/survival of
our MI King Salmon.

weekend for yours truly. Down time is the
pause that refreshes. Breaks from the daily
routine is fertile ground for new ideas to grow.
Monday's topic is a mystery that dates back
about 5 years ago?

end for this year. Meat after holding the top
spot thru 2017 fell to 3rd place behind Dodger/Fly
choice that I'm highly skeptical of. Central
Lk. MI ports you just don't see old school dodgers
hanging on many rods. Guess there's someplace
where this method is still popular.

J-Plugs are easy to fish, because they're not speed

10/22/20 Spoons are
still leading in our poll about your method for
adult Salmon. There's a good reason for this.
We had a warm summer, but a deep thermocline never
hung around for long. Top 50' spoons are
probably a better choice, because you can cover more
ground at a higher speed.

Meat is a slow 2.2 to 1.8 mph presentation according
to what I've learned about running meat going back
to 2003. Any attractor program works better
the deeper the fish are. Factor in Lk. MI's
clarity and less heat absorption for being another
