  11. Great report!
  12. Nice job, fished the tournament with Special K. We fished Muskegon, found some fish in 120- 150 but couldn't find the big ones. Great charity and well run tournament.
  13. Ditto Dr. Hook. The kings have been very hard to find, normally fish between Holland and Grand Haven. I've put more hours on the water this year and only 3 kings to show for it.
