It has been awhile since I checked in.
There's certainly been some changes to the local fishing scene. The loss, this year, of local fishing institutions Dick Smith and John Laimon (of Smokey's) has certainly changed the dynamic some. In the same way it was when "Musky" Mike passed, I feel like pieces of my youth have been taken away. I hope they are all in a row-boat together somewhere, fishing.
On tap for this coming year:
Take a Vet fishing, some limited guiding, and lots of time in the boat fishing with my kids and my dad.
Look for reports to start up around April 1st.
