Today we getting ready for the big opener. Trout Season..Along with the re-Open of Walleye,Pike, Musky on Inland lakes and catch and release Bass (small and large mouth) seasons..I always love the guys that cast a line in the water at 12:01 a.m.with there fork stick in the ground, lantren on and a beer in hand sitting on a lawn chair. Classic..All you worm guys pretty please carry out your beer,pop,water and worm containers PLEASE..
I'm not sure what to do with myself for tommrow. This is the first Trout Opener I haven't been booked in a long, long time. Should I fire up the SS Minnow and troll for Walleye, dirt bike, or go streamer fishing?? I will be doning one of those thing. Usually I'm sitting in my drift boat (guiding) daydreaming about doing those things on the opener. I need to hatch a PLAN..
The Pere Marquette River is doing great..Back in it's banks. Becoming more wadeable each day. Still lots of Steelhead around first and last light are best for them. Lots of Trout still hanging around the spawning Steelhead.
I would also like to correct myself from my last report on April 4 th. Chase Creek Smokehouse is not open yet..I was taking Rose to the groomer Wednesday and stopped by took a quick picture. The place looks awesome, it's going to be really, really nice..As of now the front door area and the interior is still getting put in place..I must have gotten some bad info and herd it was open..Sorry looks like another month or so..
