Snakes!

Matt Stansberry and I went in search of rattlesnakes with a few guides for the next Belt magazine column. Geared up in thick boots and gator protectors, we hiked through woods, fields, and swampy areas in search of Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnakes. We turned up two rattlesnakes as well as a few garters and a brown snake.

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).
