Fly Fishing in Hell

“Out on the lake, fat predatory walleye prowled the nearshore for baitfish. Dozens of other anglers had come to the breakwall to cast glowing baits and rattling plugs, slowly retrieved in the hopes of hooking one of the year’s biggest walleye. Fish up to 30 inches and over ten pounds cruised the surface looking for shiners and shad in a vast food-web sprawling across this Great Lake.” – Matt Stansberry

Hog Slam 2014

Eight of us headed North to fish on the Grand River for our first Hog Slam weekend looking for Steelhead but happy with anything that would bite. It’s a little early in the year for steelhead fishing so we were all pretty happy when we landed two of them. Total fish count for the weekend: 2 Steelhead, 1 Pike, 3 Bass, 1 carp (giant chub).
