Today was just shy of stupid jigging for chinooks on Lake Michigan. Over 30 hits and landed 15 of them. Nice thing is they were all silver and perfect for the grill! I still have Friday morning and Saturday evening open if you want to get out on a trip. Otherwise I hav...

Monday March 7th, my partner and I wheeled it close to 500 miles to Alexandria Minnesota to start pre fishing for the Team Extreme Nationals. We had heard chatter about the tournament possibly being cancelled due to bad ice and a week forecast of 50 degree temps. Tuesd...

Saturday i had the pleasure of running the last ice trip of the year in McKinley Marina.  The goal was to get my client on a bunch of steelhead but the brown trout had other ideas.  I ran every close to every rod in the top 6' of water with a mix of shiners and spawn s...

This week has just been shy of outstanding! Despite a few days of high water on one river, low water on another and heavy foot pressure, it didn't stop the steelhead from biting. With my home river getting low and a hair clear, Creek Candy Beads were the trick the past...

My first NAIFC tournament was definitely a learning experience.  Pre fishing lead to be a tough struggle trying to find any decent bluegills.  After cover all of the safe ice and weed beds I could find, all we found were small perch, small bluegills and a lot of large...

With the recent warm snap, I was able to take a day off of the ice and sneak off to the rivers in search of a female brown for spawn.  It was refreshing to tie into some nice steelhead on my Raven 12'9 Matrix but unfortunately after landing three steelhead and one stoc...

Even though this is a little late seeing all the ice is off the Root river due to recent warm weather and rain but just before it hit I had the pleasure of running the best guide trip of the winter.  I met three guys on the root and showing them how to set a few automa...

    Since the first tournament of the Team Extreme Ice Series was cancelled this past weekend, I decided to take a run north to the UP of MI and hit some waters I haven't fished in many years. The Friday night I got into Gogebic Co. park around 3:30 and set up for sha...
