"One Last Hurrah" - November 14 2017

My rods and reels are safely stowed away for the year, well except the pier gear. Whitefishing is just around the corner and the walleye fishing has been steady. Besides you never know what kind of weird stuff will show up in the channel when the water is cold. At this point I only plan on being in a boat if I'm pursuing ducks, although I wish I had enough time to take advantage of the great November bass fishing out there.

CENTURY MARK

Well here we are still moving forward at blog number 100. A lot has changed since the website/blog experience began. We've moved from one side of the state to the other, got married, got a dog, had a baby, and managed to catch a few fish in between it all.

Big thanks to Brandirawks for getting this going and taking the time to post each and every one of them. Working on the website/blog has extremely important for getting new opportunities in the fishing world. It isn't always easy to find the time to sit down and write these things or a lot of fun when you have to tell a story about not catching them. It's impossible for me to tell who reads these but if you have taken a moment to read one of them I really appreciate it!

With things just general chaos this fall and no place of my own to store the boat for the winter. I've already put it away for the year, I did get some amazing smallmouth fishing in before that happened. It felt good to do a little fun fishing, just me and a bunch of savage smallmouths biting whatever moved.

2017 STATE CHAMPIONSHIP WRAP UP

Before we get to the Michigan Bass Nation State Championship details I'm sure some of you have been very anxious for some salmon news. I'll tell you it has been an incredibly disappointing season in Muskegon. Some fish have been skirting through, but no one has been marking them. I have had a buddy up here on vacation fishing every day for the last two weeks and the only salmon he has seen caught was the one he did. However, there are a bunch of them in the river and who knows what is left to come. Thanks to my buddy Shane I was able to have one fun day in Grand Haven when it was stacked with coho's and a few kings. Unfortunately, they were gone two days later when I took my dad and brother there. It was a fun adventure though since neither of them had ever been on the river before.

I also got to switch things up and do some waterfowling. Fortunately, I did not have a tournament on the Saturday of the youth hunt so Trevor, Hutch, and I went again! No mosquitoes this year since it was in the 40's and it was going to be a great morning for duck hunting. Not only was Trevor excited but so was the Hutch man. I haven't gotten a ton of time to work with the dog since Mabel joined the family this summer (everything has been chaos), so I was curious how ready he would be. It took about two seconds for Hutch to put camo, decoys, and early morning together. He was ready to get in the truck and go.
