    I’ve been dispatched to work in the UP! Worked Sunday only to have yesterday off. Headed back south from ironwood to fish a Lake Michigan riv since all the superior rivs are blown out and and choclate milk. After fishing I headed back to ironwood for some hiking. All and all it was a great day in the UP! Here’s my day in pics. 9BB87528-B4D9-406C-9BDB-31C60747247D.jpeg 8703C144-4F97-4F53-A6FC-83ABA8C6FF85.jpeg A9419CE4-5294-4580-932C-3AB27A68832E.jpeg

    Nothing like hitting the UP silver mines. I got some silver myself on Sunday.

    Did you catch her by the broken bike frame hole or the abandoned washing machine hole?

    I think I snagged that old whirlpool a couple of times! The locals fishing welcomed me in and were a blast to fish with, eehh

    With some sustained effort on the part of the Manos, it could be a nice piece of water to fish, more like what people travel to the UP to experience. Hopefully, things will change with the construction of the new dam. MDNR just received a big chunk of cash to remove the flume wall.

    Lots of 2 to 5 pound coho mixed in with the chrome right now if you can find them (not able to mention where to go ) in the UP.
