One chapter closes the page is turning

Well my salmon season is over for 2016, three weeks flew by and I'm back home. I want to make public that I will not be returning to either Beaver Island or the Pere Marquette for the 2017 season. Bookings have dropped off for both fisheries and there just isn't a reason for me to go back any longer. I will always miss the summers on the island, the people and the life style of it, along with floating down the beautiful Pere Marquette watching the leaves turn vibrant colors. It has been a amazing 6 years guiding some of Michigan's finest waters. If you have any desire to fish either destination contact Steve Martinez at I will keep you posted on my plans for 2017 as they get set in stone. On the home front the Kankakee's water temps are great it's running high the fish should be hungry. I'm back on it later this week. I'm playing the waiting game on Lake Michigan the water needs to drop a bit for the fall game to kick off. Fall smallmouth are just as big and hungry as in the spring get your trip in while the weather is still nice, give me a call I'll get you fishing.
