Just got back last night from an amazing 3 day trip to the PM in Michigan. Went with my pastor his son and his new father-in law. Stayed with a friend from Ohio at a house he owns there. The fish were stacked in a few holes around his house, so we didn't even have to leave the comforts of his home. The guide boats even stacked up 2 deep in the hole on his property, but had to leave before noon, so then we got it until midnight. We got them on everything from eggs to buggers, to barber poles. I must have hooked into at least 100 fish myself. Just nonstop fun and great friends. The pictures really speak for themselves, so I will let them. A lot of fish over 36" I got 2 38's and the guy who owns the place got one over 40".

Here are some more. Notice a few of the night pictures. We used glow in the dark flies and they were deep in the mouth. 2 guys to hold that fish over 40. Lots of pictures I didn't put up

I want to go back now! Buddy who stays there through the season said the heavy rains and front slowed things a little bit. Also my back and arms might go on strike. I went last year for the first time, having never fly fished before, and I was hooked. This year I broke the handle of my fly reel on my Palm trying to slow one down. Those fish are out of control. I really think k they make steelhead look like bluegill and muskie look like a 2 lb bass. Never would have imagined that I would set the hook and 30 seconds and 100 yards later, I would be reeling back in my empty line

Nice to see the size is back! For at least a decade or two, the size was pitiful. But now I see the rumors are true on them coming back larger. Looks like you had a blast. Next time bring more whisky and Ben-gay for the muscles, lol. I'm definitely planning a trip next year now...
