Spring Swinging

Hit the Milwaukee with Adam a few weeks back and we experienced something out of the ordinary…great fishing.  Even though the water was high, cold, and slowly rising all day from snow melt, the Steelhead were in and on the grab…bigly.  Water clarity was great and very few anglers were on the water giving us plenty of … Continue reading »

Boats & Beasts

I’ve been quiet on the blog front for awhile and a lot has happened since my last post.  I got married back in August and wedding planning took over my life for the better part of 3 months.  Truth be told, I probably spent more time planning my Bachelor’s Party.  I spent a lot of weekend … Continue reading »

Before the Freeze

The Fall/Winter run on the SW Tribs of Lake Michigan have been very difficult these last 2 years to say the least.  After talking to a lot of fisherman who have fished these rivers a hell of a lot more than myself for many many years, it’s clear the number of fish are way down.  When you see … Continue reading »
