Don’t have as many photos as I should have by now to share, but some days have actually been a tough bite, some days they simply eluded the net and on a few others, I was simply complacent or lazy thinking another will be along soon! Hehehe ;^)

We got one early and one late, but the bite was nonexistent during the rest of the day for us.

I was honored to be honored along with some much more deserving vets by the PMTU as one of “Jac’s Warriors”.

Got to spend a day in Jac’s boat as part of that deal! (Tossed streamers, caught a couple, rolled a few more and had a great time hanging out with a truly great man who does so much for so many!)

After spending a great day on the water with Jac a bunch of us headed out to Barski for his first annual Brewfest!

If you didn’t make it you missed out! I took photos of every course, but here’s just a couple of my favorites…

Got a little worried about the ‘ole first cast of the day curse when we landed this one on the first cast, but we got away with it! ;^)

Lost a few hot fish as well, but Taylor had it handled for the most part...

Dennis and I had a blast as usual during his stay!

This guy was probably the hottest fish I’ve seen do battle this year! Nice work buddy...

The shop is open 8 to 6 daily now and we still have plenty of open dates for both guide trips (Full or half days) and lodging. 1-231-745-3529. FYI, we filled that open spot for Argentina, but then lost a couple due to some health issues… We now have 2 spots open for Argentina if you are interested in a great trip!!! (Details below)

I am headed out shortly to my old business partner Bob’s place for deer camp and fellowship, so I won’t be back on the water until after next weekend most likely. Good luck to all the hunters and fishers out there and I’ll type to ya later! (Regular updates on Facebook as usual! ;^)
