Michigans Upper Penninsula Trout
« on: November 05, 2010, 02:15:43 PM »
Well it was 31 degrees out at 5:00 this am with a 10 mph NE wind and snow flakes in the air. I would say that is the signal for steelhead fishing. So I grabbed my gear and headed out to a nearby river. I was all set up by 6:00 am waiting for the sun to break out a little bit. It did not take long before I was doing battle with a nice fat 18 incher. As soon as I reset that pole it went off again and I was fighting one that was 10 plus pounds. He managed to find a submerged log and break off. I reset ths pole again. Just enough time to get my hands warm and a pole bounced but the fish dropped the hook. Only for a minute though and he was back on this time for keeps. I no sooner get him on the bank ( 6 pounds) and another steelhead hits on the other rod another 6 pounder. As soon as I get off work here I will start on the gutpile. The crows will eat well in the am.

  O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 Awesome, steelie!
I've fished in lower part of Michigan, but not for trout.  :'(
You using something like an egg sack, or what, for bait?
I used to know some fellas from here that went to your area every year and usually had pretty good luck.
I have a pal that owns some land and hunting camp not far from where you fish. He invites me there to fish and hunt. I should take him up on it! I am his deer hunting guide when he bow hunts here every 3 years.  :)
