This is a great time of year on the Pere Marquette. The salmon are starting their move up the river and it is the only time you can rip BIG crank-baits (thundersticks) for FRESH salmon! It is a blast. There’s something about a 20 pound fresh salmon on light tackle that really gets the blood pumping.
I just got back from an excellent season in Alaska and wanted to get back on my home waters so I did just that today. I only got a couple hours in on the lower part of the river, but went 2 for 3. The biggest going 18-20lbs.
Here’s the good news.
LOTS of fish on the move for this time of year. All indications point to a great season.
Shoot me an email or give me a call if you are coming up!
