When I left the baitshop Friday afternoon, I told Diane the conditions outside were screaming "big pike day" to me, (it's mid September with overcast skies, strong south winds, rain, and a falling barometer.) When the rain stopped, I headed to the Escanaba harbor, and started trolling big spinnerbaits. The fish were very active. I went 6 for 10 in a couple hours of fishing. Landed two 29 inch fish, and lost one about 32 inches next to the boat. Had few dinks, too. Last fish of the night, however, was the one I was looking for!

40 incher, baby!

Chris, Hope all is well. Stopped in your shop with my son to say hi in June but your mom I believe said you were in the hospital. Stay safe and healthy.

I was stuck in the hospital most of the summer. Just finally getting back on my feet and spending some time in the boat for some "on the water therapy."

Been keeping it simple, catching some nice bluegills in the Escanaba harbor. On Sunday, my dad and I took my sister and her girls out for the afternoon. Even with the strong winds, we were able to find a calm area, and caught lots of fish. We kept 30 for a future fish fry.

We've been catching fish all around the docks, just using plain hooks under slip bobbers set 4 to 8 feet down. Tough to beat plain old worms for bait.

It's as good a place as any to get kids on good numbers of fish, right now. Get out and enjoy it, no boat needed.

Despite the all day rain, the walleye fishing was pretty good for the teams fishing the Wheat's Tournament.

Went out of Kippling on Saturday and did well.   Fish seemed active.  Trolled cranks on planer boards and caught several Walleye and Drum.

Don't remember this many Drum around.  Also a few Pike.  Had one monster pike hit a Perch that was being brought in on a planer board.  Couldn't land it but it was big.  Had eight walleyes a dozen nice perch and several small pike.
