Re: My Fishing Photo Album - Lake Michigan

I can't remember I don't even think we had a LORAN back then to mark buoys.Just balls deluxe an a little common sense. I do remember dad saying the crew at the fish plant in Cedar River Michigan was in awe of the beast. And that crew sees a lot of fish.

Re: My Fishing Photo Album - Lake Michigan

I like this action shot I took while we were lifting nets on March 19,2017. It was a dead flat day,so I got atop the boat and with some creative engineering managed to get this shot. My brother Gary trying to convince two whitefish it would be better for them in the boat,Ha.

Re: My Fishing Photo Album - Lake Michigan

Here is one big ass Whitefish caught by me and my dad October 25, 1994. We were fishing float nets at the time and I don't even know how he got his big ass head into a mesh to be caught. He weighed in at just over 19 lbs.. To this day I wish we would have had him mounted.http://www.fishtug.com/forum...
