the central Lk. MI ports Manistee & Ludington hit
the bottom of the barrel as far a King Salmon

See only good things in the future with increase
King Salmon plants, some by MI and lot by WI.
Our MDNR's failed theory, their natural reproduction
experiment is not enough to sustain a viable fishery

Figure each season from here on out will get
progressively better with more and more fish
entering the system in the years ahead.
tackle for 2020 will come to an end today with our
delivery of Super Snubbers™. We were out of
green snubbers and low on black. Keeping all

Thinking of writing a letter top Santa Claus for a
new head of the MDNR's fishery division with a

very same motor that came in my 1987 Cherokee with
twin V8s. Close to 8000 hours on the original
Crusader V8 motors before repower speaks volumes for
my charter boat maintenance program.
AC Delco ignition is the same to too. So, I'm
very confident in my abilities to perform what needs
to be done. Except for a total rebuild, I'm
good to go.
