WSP Shenanigans

Recommended Posts

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.

On the right tackle those critters can be a lot of fun and some of the best for getting steady action for kids. Great to teach anyone what the drag is for and how to fight a fish.

They have provided action on many days over on Erie that otherwise would have been very boring. I'd much rather have a bend in the rod vs nothing!
