"Mabel Bennett Elliott" - July 7 2017

July 4th was an average day, lunch with the in laws, working on the boat/tackle. Big plans to hit the Grand River in the morning and then work on Lake Michigan all night. Things quickly changed when Amanda's water broke and she jolted out of bed. I grabbed the bags and off we went to Grand Rapids, it was time to have this baby.

Dumpster Fire

Three weeks into the season and things have been going zero or hero. Which is pretty typical for me until the post spawn lull gets out of town and they start eating right. Unfortunately, one of those zeros was in a tournament that mattered. Other than that, I've hopped into a couple random ones and even got Amanda out for one last tournament.

While the tournament I took Amanda on wasn't the most successful tournament fishing, it was a nice relaxed night of fishing. We hopped into the Thursday Night Bite on Muskegon and just had fun. I wasn't driving anywhere fast with an 8-month pregnant lady on board so we even volunteered to be blast off boat. As for the fishing, I spent too much time chasing skittish bed fish or fry guarders and we only ended up with three keepers. However, I'm still glad we gave it a shot!

The BEAST

Finally getting to write about some real fishing action in this blog. After a slow start this year I finally am feeling like I'm getting in a groove or so I thought until the first tournament. Before I get into that fun stuff I've got to talk about an Amazing trip Amanda, Hutch, and I took up north.

We decided to spend 5 days in the Traverse City area as our last trip as a Family of 3. It was predetermined it would be heavy on boat time and the weather could not have worked out more perfectly. While I never got on any good reaction bites because it was so calm, I got to catch them doing what I really love. All the lakes will remain nameless in this one because some of the places I did really well fly under the radar and were lakes I was told about. Anyway we decided to stop at a place I had never fished on the way up. Caught a bunch of perch there but never touched a bass in a couple hours. Not a good start to the trip so we quickly bounced and continued north.
