With the seasons about to start for various fish, I am still catching the only thing legally open. Crappie and giants at that! Yesterday was a little better than today but the quality is well worth the lack of numbers. Some real monster “Gorillas” have been landed under a float and on extremely light tackle. These fish may not be the best fighters but what they lack in strength, they more than make up in taste. Very similar to a walleye for their fight but even tastier!

Salmon will be next on the list this week and hopefully the season opener will provide plenty of action for my guests. Fly rods will be the tackle of choice and trolling the technique used to pursue these feisty silver bullets. Hopefully there will be many reels screaming, just like they always do!
