Looks like daylight temperatures will be above freezing through next week. Maybe Spring is really here. It's just one more reason I'm looking forward to the Manistee river outing this weekend. Who else is planning to fish the Big Manistee this weekend?

We had a good turnout for the steelhead challenge, a total of 10 D.A.S. members show up for outing and around the same Metro-West members also made it. A few of the D.A.S. and Metro-West fishermen show up friday morning for some pre-fishing on the big Manistee river. The fishing was ok considering that the water was still a little cold for the big run of steelhead. We decided to fish Suicide Bend for the outing because there was about 10 fish caught there on Friday morning. Saturday Gaspare and I started at 6;00 am and did not stop fishing till 4;00 pm, Gaspare broke one off first thing in the morning but redeem himself 5 minutes later with a 4lb steelhead. At around 8;00 are good friend Bill Foster comes down to fish with us and one hour later hooks up one and breaks it off ( Bill runs 10lb test line ) I never got a bite all day Saturday, but hooked 3 on Friday in the exact same spot . So the D>A>S> guys landed 2 fgish on Saturday and the Metro-West crew landed 8 or 9. So the plaque goes to the Metro-West team . Bill Foster did end up catching the biggest steelhead up by the dam ,13lbs 4ozs so he took home the cash prize. So neck year lets try alittle harder to win back that plaque.
