Spring Fishing

Hello fishing friends! Spring steelheading is here. With the river levels dropping and the temps rising the steelhead are on the way. I have been fishing the Pere Marquette River. The pm has been fishing very good. Lots of good sized brown trout and a handful of steelhead everyday. It is a great time to be outside enjoying a day on the river. We still have few good spring days open! Lets go fishing!

Back at it again with Capt. Billy


It was another great day in Charlotte Harbor! Capt. Billy Barton put me on some of the best fishing I have had down here! We left the launch at about 2pm and fished until dark. After a short boat ride we where on the snook. The first stop was loaded with fish on the bite. After we did our best to hook as many snook as we could, capt. Billy fired up his ranger and we went to a area that he said was full of nice redfish. And he was right! We spent the rest of the evening catching redfish non stop. Big thanks to Capt. Billy Barton for a great trip! If your in the Ft. Myers/ Port Charlotte area take time to fish with capt. Billy. You will not regret it!

Also our spring steelhead dates are filling fast! Now is the time to reserve prime dates for the spring!

Winter Brown Trout

The Manistee River in the winter is an amazing place to spend the day. The fishing is still pretty good. Both brown trout and steelhead are biting! With the low angling pressure and the beautiful views December is going to be a great month to get out fishing!
