Won't be long now.. who will post the first pic of a river caught "kang". I'm headed up in a few weeks.
I would just go to the Betsie and run skein under a float. It's not complicated. Find a hole that looks like it should hold fish and hit it with Skein under a float. If you don't want to fish the Betsie, there are plenty of other tribs that will hold fish. PM me if you want more info.Anyone who wants to throw ole TFB a bone on where to fish may get rewarded with riches...beer, a 20 spot, smb and northern pike honey holes, etc., if their tip leads to my first king.
Yes I have no shame.
Trust me, 10 years hasn't changed a thing.I may go up this year. We used to set up camp (in a campground, not on the river) and fish every weekend but the fights, the trash, the poaching just got to me. Maybe another try after 10 years is warranted. There really are few things as exciting, at least for me, than a king on a fly rod in a small river. I think I'm talking myself into it right now. 😆
Nah, the Betsie is for "fly fishermen." Flip, drift, RIP.I would suggest the Betsie, but make sure to bring your lead minnow with 2 sets of treble hooks, 60lb test spooled on a level wind reel mounted on a down rigger rod. This is the optimum set up for the Betsie.
