Hi, just got home from that area. Bite was tough. Weather was a huge factor. Very inconsistent. Detour bite was ok. Ran from 60 to 102. Dipsey's best with meat rig. lots of fish around. Never seen so many lookers tho. We had quality fish but the total numbers were down. Most were mid to high teens. boats were scattered from inside Detour to well past Summer. gap was ok. great time tho. sounded as tho the Manistique bite was hot.

How was your trip to Detour? Bite pick up? My friend is down there now with his family. I hope you had good luck. So much water;so little time. Be safe.

Back from Detour yesterday. After 3 1/2 days we got to fish about 8 hours. Wind, wind, wind and more wind. At Detour nothing going except a few lakers at 50ft. No salmon to speak of. Nets are a major problem. At least 5 nets between the Sate launch and the lighthouse. The locals are not happy, spoke to a bunch of them. Looks like Detour has taken a hit with nets and lack of recent salmon plants. PS- I did lose a $125.00 rod and reel off Raber when the holder let go in the 25mph wind and waves, what fun. Still a beautiful place to visit. Next trip to Brainerd, Mn on Sept.2nd for a month.

Cannot wait, our 7th Sept. there. Best to all!

    • No dave.   Quite sure i'm aware of the equipment I was born with..   And how to use it..
    • Enter Governor smith..   Non-elected by design.   She couldn't win an election for dog catcher, let alone Governor..   Did anyone really believe sickly mark dayton could/would finish his term ??    
    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Brit Hume is now a "Trump supporter" ??     Doh-Kay...    
    • Or..... The Russians.
    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
