Went steelheading one more time today. It started out with a bang ... I had 2 in the net by 8:00 a.m. Then lost a nice brown at about 10:30. I fished until 2:30 and did not have another bite. There was a lot of ice in the river today after the cold weather from yesterday. It appears long rodding is coming to an end. Here are a few pics from the week:
I don't claim to be an expert fisherman ... just a guy who loves to fish and has been blessed for his efforts. I learned a long time ago that in fishing, and in much of life, you get out of it what you put into it. I work hard when fishing, I study a lot, and always try to learn something on every outing. I hope you can use the information I post on this blog to learn something as well. Thanks for following along!

After reading numerous reports about the great Brown bite going on in Milwaukee and being in need of Brown eggs ... I drove over this morning to fish a few hours. Most of the gates were locked at McKinley but I was able to sneak onto one set. Got a buck Steelie at 6:30 a.m. and then did not have another bite until about 10:30 ... when I got a twin to the first fish. And that was it. No Browns, no eggs. Hopefully that will all change next week.

Fished for about 6 hours yesterday ... went 7 for 9. It didn't matter what color of sacks I used ... they ate them! The only "unfortunate" part was ... they bit so well I just kept fishing the same run all day and didn't do any exploring. Now I'll have to do it once the ice forms.

Fished in the rain all morning Saturday in a new spot. I had never been their before and needed to do some exploring, but it was WELL worth the time and effort. Found 3 holes and a pile of fish! Went 3 for 7 with about 15 to 18 take downs. The steelies were all chrome ... looked like they came straight from the lake that morning. They had to be hauling ... I was a long way from the lake!
