Fall Salmon Fishing

I have been getting some grief about not posting this sooner so here it is!

Chad and I were anxious to try out a new fish finder so we headed out onto Lake Michigan just before sunrise. Thank goodness the new fish finder had GPS because it was pitch black. Its a little scary trolling out into the big lake with decent size waves when you cant see anything but what your spotlight is pointed at.

Anyways, on to the good stuff. We got out to 90 feet of water and started to put lines down as the sun just started to rise. Once we hit around 110 feet of water we got our first hit followed by 2 others. 2 people on the boat and 3 lines with fish on. Imagine the chaos.... We ended the day going 7 for 8 in only 2 hours of fishing. Hopefully it wasn't a fluke and we can be as productive everytime we go out.

That is a great fishing story! If I were a pregnant lady I'd probably go into labor if you were to tell me that story!

The true test is to see if you can be that successful with me on the boat.

I know this post seems to be fading into obscurity but I feel the need to comment on it a second time. I don't think the blog visitors know how much of a victory this was for us. So many failed or mildly successful attempts, new lures, new poles, faster, slower, deeper, shallower, night, day. We even abandoned our boat to try and learn a thing or two from our more successful friends. This was the last trip our for the year, and now I cannot wait for the spring.
