  1. My son and I spent Saturday at a pier on Lake Michigan looking for some stray summer runs, kangs, browns, or whatever else might bite.

    The water temp was just under 60*, so I expected to find some bait lurking around and possibly some predators. Bucket full of alewife, we're ready to rock!


    After we got our bait collected, we set out three rods with sliding pyramid sinkers. It didn't take long to get some action.

    First fish of the day! It wasn't what we were looking for, but we'll take it!


    Next fish was Dad's, and while it was a decent fish, I was still falling behind.


    Kid gets another fish on, another nice one!


    The last fish of the day was a screamer, I thought for sure it was gonna be a kang. He easily had a 100 yards of line out before my son got him turned around. Ended up being this feller...


    We ended up spending about 12 hours out there, catching sheephead until our shoulders hurt. It turned into a beautiful day with lots of barely dressed ladies.

    We might not have caught our target species, but sometimes the bi-catch can be just as much fun.

  2. I do quite a bit of cat fishing in the summer months bobber fishin' in the river.

    I never really fish them much until I put together a program. It's enjoyable for my son and I to land 30 cats a half day of fishing.

    It definitely helps keep the attention of a young one.
