Make that three of us!! We are melting gloriously today and it is only a matter of time now before I can hit Clark's Marsh up here and Sylvan Glen Lake in my hometown. Woolly Buggers away!

(almost) Spring...

I spent midday on the Muskegon below Croton today, a good 3 hours on the water swinging streamers for uncooperative steelhead...first time out with the switch rod and despite some minor embarrassing moments a welcome relief from cabin fever and snow.

58 degrees by 1 pm and I didn't want to leave even though the kids are coming home from college today- hard choices!

Real spring is just a few weeks away now and I'm hoping the weather stays mild enough to get out more and more.

Tight lines, all!

Car is loaded with steelhead rods, gear, and food for four days. Leaving home at 1:00 a.m. plan to arrive at motel by 7:00 a.m and be fishing by 8:00. Hopefully a good report with pictures of chrome will be posted upon my return. Yippee!

Paul, I just love those big smallmouth. No need to be too technical either. A small box of Clouser minnows and crayfish, a couple poppers and a spool of 3X and a clipper and off you go.

Matt, nice chunky smallmouth like the above rise on Cooke Pond to mayflies and caddisflies, including the Hex. I also do well with WBs and KBFs. Looking forward to it all!
