Warmer temps, ice is breaking up so we are just a few short weeks from launch and guppy gettin times!!! Waxed one baot today, 2 more to go and were fishin!! Lake Mi still has alot of floating ice but it has been melting quickly. Should be Coho fishing in southern L Mi very soon and ice out in Ludington guys will be after browns which should be another good season with the increase in planted fish.
This weekend is the Grand Rapids show. I will be there on Fri in the Blood Run Tackle booth. They have a new 20# walleye copper that because of it's diameter it has almost the same sink rate as the 32# copper. But fishing the shallower water generally for walleye this makes a perfect set-up especially with the smaller dia. to put on the smaller reels guys generally use for eye's.

Another year and it's time to start thinking about getting your tackle ready. Outdoor Shows are starting, in fact Bass Pro spring Classic is the next 2 weekends and I will be there.
What do we have to look forward to this year. Last years salmon fishing was very tough after the Ludington Offshore tournament because of 3 north winds that blew our warm water away and then we had virtually no wind until September. April until the tournament fishing was phenomenal, then Sept and Oct fishing was good again after south winds blew good water and bait back again. I think there will be good solid fishing this year but we need good winds that stack thermals and bait to make it consistent through the summer.
Saginaw Bay--Not much to say here except that fishing was absolutely phenomenal last year and has been very good this winter and is expected to stay very very good this summer. In fact there is some talk by the Mi DNR of changing the size limit or creel limit or both to take more fish out of the system to allow perch to rebound.
