Summer in an Hour

I am a weather junkie. Supercells, pressure systems and record temps fascinate me. I spend hours watching The Weather Channel. I monitor radar on Accu-Weather.com just for fun. If I didn’t spend so much time in the outdoors, I’d probably need a 12-step program for my addiction to “Local on the 8’s”. All outdoorsy folks … Continue reading

Adventure Fishing in Northern Michigan

Adventure Fishing was the theme last weeked. Dedicated to trying new waters I took a simple approach. Ask friends for recommendations where to fish. And try it out. The pay-off was an unforgettable weekend. Friday morning started with a quick 1 1/2 hour trip on familiar waters to warm up my casting arm. We were fishing in Badger Lake at Lost Lake Woods club near … Continue reading

25% Walleye

Just settled in at my desk after another morning of chasing walleye on the Detroit River before work. Getting up at 4:30 to go fishing seems like a good idea until about 11 am. Good news, there’s enough coffee in my office to keep me awake. Bad news, the coffee tastes like shit.  This was my fourth wally … Continue reading

Trout fishing on the Westside of Michigan is expected to be awesome this season. Weather conditions have been ideal increasing the survival rate for planted and wild trout.

How to Stop the Asian Carp?

***UPDATE***    http://tinyurl.com/2fvoyr4 The Chicago Tribune reported that the DNR’s massive poisoning of the Chicago River revealed zero asian carp. It was believed that the carp made it up to the locks in Chicago and basically to the doorstep of Lake Michigan. The only way to know for sure was to poison the river resulting in 100,000 dead fish. Good … Continue reading

Are Fish From the Detroit River Safe to Eat?

I’ve heard at least 100 different opinions about eating walleye caught out of the Detroit river. Most non-fishermen are disgusted by the idea. But most anglers seem alright with it. I personally don’t have an issue with eating a few walleye from the river per year. If you fry them up right you can hardly taste the PCB’s … Continue reading

“I’m Gonna Get You Sucka”

Fishing for Suckers::Yates Cider Mill, Rochester, MI Ice out is an awesome time to fish. Driven to feed and spawn, many species head into rivers making them pretty accesible to anglers. Driven by shanty-fever and the need to learn how to cast again, I head out to the Clinton River. Zeus and I fish at Yates Cider Mill starting … Continue reading
