    Sweet!!! Gotta love it when you put in all the time fishing, finding the sweet spots and then brother comes along and hooks the Big One! LOL! Congrats to him though, always nice to catch a fish that only comes along every so often in Michigan waters.

    That's a helluva fish. I don't care who catches it as long as I'm around to witness it! You put him on the spot; nice work as a guide!

    I hooked into something on Devil's over the weekend that I fought for 15 mins before it broke me off. Darn 2lb test line!

    My son and I hit the ice one last time yesterday and had decent luck on Devils Lake. The bite didn’t turn on until 10:30 or so. Loved watching him pull in two of his biggest crappie ever caught. IMG_3258.JPG 60478759850__7947966B-D315-4F36-8D4F-45816DD869BD.JPG

    Changing the water from ice to salt has always been my therapy for bad ice years. Took three dang days for the small craft warnings to disappear though. Oh well, better than work!

    Next year will be better guys! Stow your gear and get in the soft water! IMG_20200310_105635431.jpeg

    Did a water temp check last Saturday (11/7). Outside temps were gorgeous (mid 70s).

    Water temp (about 3-4 inches below surface): 50.09 F.

    I saw some ice too on the way home around 2:30 in the afternoon on some farm ponds. Can hardly wait.
