The old timers in here will remember back in the day when MS outings were some of the high points of the year. Pheasant hunts....remember the rain Neal...errr! Kneel.............Paul, George, steelhead fishing for a weekend in the Ludington area and Lands Inn stays with a ton of fun in the bar...........the annual Manistee Labor Day weekend fishing tourney, ice fishing on White Lake with a GREAT breakfast beforehand.........Crystal Lake (Benzie County) ice fishing trips. These were very well attended adventures and it gave the participants the opportunity to get to know each other. The last one that I attended was several years ago on the Muskegon R. at Newaygo and marked an anniversary of MS. This forum used to have several outings going at once and it was hugely popular and well visited.
