Lake Run Trout

Bolster the Coaster

Thinking about hitting the UP in the Spring so I’ve been reading up on Lake Run Brook Trout aka Coasters.  There really doesn’t seem to be a solid fishery anywhere for them in Michigan or Wisconsin but Canada and Minnesota have had some success.  Targeting them seems futile but it’s still nice knowing they can … Continue reading »

Salmon River Steelhead

Fishing has always had the ability to bring people together from all sorts of places and backgrounds.  Sometimes even reconnecting people from the past.  Dane Jackson was more of an acquaintance in high school than a friend.  We shared friends, but never really crossed paths in our free time.  His name came up a couple … Continue reading »

Fall Fishin’

Well, this year I haven’t gotten out nearly as much as I would like to due to busy work and family life, but there was a window of decent fishing on Wisc0nsin’s southern Lake Michigan tributaries this fall.  Some friends of mine who did get out saw about 2-3 weeks of fairly consistent fishing, and by … Continue reading »
