First off, I had some vacation to use before the end of the year and spent it fishing a stocked westside river for 3 days straight. I used the center pin and eggs sacks all 3 days. Fishing was the best Wednesday and Thursday which had an all day bite. A huge push/run of Manistee steel came in on Wednesday. I fished with my wife's nephew on Wednesday. He never caught a steelhead before and I was able to get him to catch some fish with his 6' bass rod. Some of the bigger fish on Wednesday: Thursday I bumped into a friend George from another site. I fished with him for an hour and he liked how the center pin was catching fish. While we were talking I hooked a steelhead and handed him the pin and let him fight and land a nice 30" fish. The next day George went and bought a pin. Here is the 30" George landed for me (hey I set the hook so its my fish): Some of the bigger fish Thursday: Friday I fished with another friend Rick for half the day. The morning bite was very good. I got Rick halfway to the darkside. He caught his first steelhead using as float. We had a doubleheader on which was a first this year for us.
