Steve, Angie, Steph, & I had a great day on the Pere Marquette River today! We headed down river to begin our morning and landed right on the fish. Normally Steph gets us started but today was Steve’s day. Steve landed our first two fish before Angie got onboard by boating her first one of the morning. After hooking and losing a few more, we took a break from the action to eat our shore lunch and then head further down river.

At our next spot of the day, we watched hundreds – if not a thousand – of fish pushing through the sand on their way up river. I called Zach George (fellow fishing guide) down to see what was happening where he was fishing on the river. While on the phone, Steve hooked a big male king salmon on a crankbait. He boated a 33-pound giant after a long fight.

Zach and Harvey (fishing friend of ours) soon arrived and we both set up to skein fish the deep bend where all the fish were pushing. It did not take long before both boats were hooking and fighting fish. We both boated four more fish and Steph ended our day with a hard-fighting female.

It was a great day on the water with good friends and I cannot wait for next time!

The lower Pere Marquette River has had a lot of fish push up river recently but some are starting to stay. Fishing is getting better every day. We will see what the rain does to the river but fishing should improve over the next week.

Before heading to my last ice fishing tournament of the season, I called my good friend, Dave Ellis, to see if he had time to fish before headed out of town to work. We hit the lower Pere Marquette River around 3:30p; and with Dave’s first drift, he hooked and lost one. I got on […]

With fall colors on display and enjoyable weather, Eric, Elena, and I headed to the lower Pere Marquette River after fall steelhead. We got to the river shortly after sunrise and headed to our first spot of the morning. With no luck and a few other boats around, we decided to take a little boat […]

Zach fished the lower Pere Marquette River today and said that the bite was good. With all of the rain coming, however, I think it is going to turn to mud. As a result, we probably will not be back until late October for steelhead season.

With all of the rain that we have gotten recently, I moved up to the Big Manistee River near Brethren. I am sure that we will be back before salmon season is over.
