    Couple fish from the weekend. Covered a lot of water on Saturday without even a bobber drop then went 3 for 3 on Sunday and 4 for 4 yesterday afternoon. Most on bags. Resized_124347(1).jpeg 20200225_165809.jpg

    Very nice Mike, it’s been a while. My Clinton trips have been short and sweet. Hour hikes.
    My sons had the day off lucky wife can work from home. I figured I’d jam out the day’s work and get home in time to grab one of the boys and wet a line. Oldest was down so off we went, first two runs nadda second two runs game on! The boy is starting to get casting on the river, but still much more work to do. He hasn’t hooked his own but does good fighting them, at least the open face. Now the centerpin is going to take some time, we team work that set up. Lol
    Love the cold snowy days! First fish fell to hot n tot second bead and bag 99B16547-55DE-49E8-99FC-11A0C965EAD8.jpeg

    Catch and release on the Clinton, but I will keep a couple hens from the Big Manistee for eggs. I just don't care much for steelhead or salmon on the table.
