Back in the day (1965), when learning that they had stocked Lake Michigan with salmon and trout, I thought how fantastic it would be to catch large game fish close to my home.
One day I drove to the west shore of the big pond to give fishing from shore a try. It didn’t take long, I caught my 1st Coho and several after that. As the old story goes, the rest is history! Over the years I have owned several boats and have caught hundreds of salmon and trout trolling Lake Michigan. In addition, I made many trips to Wisconsin, Minnesota and Canada fishing for a trophy Musky.
Between the years of 1967 & 1985, I contracted the dread affliction called ‘MUSKY FEVER!” During that period of time, I felt compelled to hunt for and capture a trophy sized Musky!

Of all the liars among mankind, the fisherman is the most trustworthy!
