Well, with the drop in traffic due to the Plague, and a new location riddled with little brookie creeks buried in the brush, I fished the opening day of Michigan's regular trout season, with success! They sure weren't big, but the colors were comparable with some of the saltwater fish I caught in Florida!! Quality, not quantity...two brought to hand and a third took a nip at my #10 POG Bugger, an early-season performer that has worked well in the past. Trust me, I got my exercise in on this little fishing trip!

Tight lines to those going out soon! Threw in a couple more pics of spring things, including monster turkeys which frequently cross my front lawn...

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Pretty fish, and nice bird. I went yesterday, one brown and couple little brookies. Water was very low although that changed overnight. All so discovered a leak in my waders, I took a pretty bad fall in early march tripped over a rock so maybe that's when I did it. Hopefully water levels get back to a more fishable flow soon.

Beautiful! Thanks for posting. I'm thinking about hitting a little brookie stream soon myself.
