11/13/19 Lake effect
piled up a good foot of snow at my place in Manistee
County, MI yesterday. Some parts of Leelanau
County W of Traverse City, MI got of 30 inches.
So, a foot of the white stuff is tolerable with the
Purchased a new Boss vee plow a few weeks back.
This is quite an upgrade for yours truly. My
old plow was 20 years old and the plow truck was a
1996 Ford F150. Boss plows are made in
Michigan's U.P. Buying a made in MI product
was a no brainer.
Still learning the ins and outs of a vee, or wing
plow. Did learn, compared to a straight blade
plow, like Moses parting the Red Sea, this vee plow
pushed the snow clear of the mold board. No
big lumps, or drifts pile up in front of the truck.

in the history books for me. Now, it's time to
make plans for the 2020 season. Looking at
DeTour, MI either in early May, or the 3rd week of
June for Atlantic Salmon. The DeTour Passage
is in fairly sheltered waters unless there's a big
blow from the S. My research shows there is a
marina and a campground S of town.
Time frame is a good fit. That's makes this
trip a worthwhile pursuit. From what I've seen
on You Tube surface rods on planer boards is the
Fun part will be fishing new Lk. Huron waters in an
area I've never been to.

A perfect time to thank Wayne J for fishing with me
in 2019. Life has taken a toll on my former
boat mates and it was nice to have Wayne aboard.
Plus, Wayne is a Vietnam era Air Force vet that flew
on a B52.
Wayne is fun to fish with. Him going from a 3
rod spread to 6 or 9 rods was a big adjustment.
One of my best times last season was to fish aboard
his boat, the "Take Five." I was fascinated by
the constant updates to his electronic wiring scheme
since 1979 (back when he purchased his boat new).
He always does something I get a kick out of with
his great outlook. Best part? ...he's knows
what to do and is fully capable of handling any
11/10/19 Weather for the
first part of next week is exactly what I don't
want. 2020 heads are in production and will
need to be picked up. This means a trip to S
of St. Joe down US31 where lake effect snow can and
will make driving treacherous. So, it's batten
down the hatches and get ready for winter with more
snow and low temps in the low 10s.
11/9/19 A big thanks to
Wayne J, we have close up photos of Sally the one
eyed Salmon. I never noticed her jaw had been
ripped off. It was getting dark and we had
another fish on. The torn off jaw caused a
flap to cover and blind her left eye.
1000s of Kings during my 50 years and counting on
the Great Lakes and cannot ever remember seeing a
one eyed Salmon before.

Ever better, there will be a companion video to
augment the written article I'm working on now.
The written part is in layout stage and need further
.edits to the video.
