Turkey season Fishing
« on: February 03, 2013, 10:38:34 AM »

 Every year during Spring turkey season. WE always bring some fishing gear with us. It makes for a complete spring outting. Hunt in the morning, fish all afternoon. Hunt in the evening. We have had some great adventures. It's fun bring a turkey and a steelhead home from camp. I know it's opening week of catch and release bass. Dose anyone else fish during spring season?

 Fishing the Manistee River is one of our favorite spots. The  Sturgeon are usually running that time of year and makes from some great excitement on the river. Small hair jigs (black and yellow) and a bobber. Tipped with live bait, works best for us. On trout and steelhead.

This year we are going to fish Elk rapids. The steelhead run there that time of year, and  brown trout are in at good numbers also. Small circle hooks and leaf warms  splitshot and a bobber works just fine.

Here is my secret for catching trout.  I use 4lb test mono and a clear bobber. You will have to retie you r line and hook  often it's a hastle but you  will catch fish 5=1 over a  larger line. Give your self 3- 4 foot leader bellow the bomber. I  use wax worms and leaf worms. Make sure you are not in a fly only stream. Good luck.

Saw some nice fish cought near Kalkaska. Flies and live bait  is the ticket.  A few nice browns and steelhead were weighed in at Jack's. With several  brook and rainbows mixed in. The paraid  for the trout festival was on Saturday. It was a  beautiful day, It was 72 and people were in Thier shortsleeves  and shorts.

  We took off and fished Elk Rapids Dam. We stuck out, but saw some nice steelhead caught Friday afternoon. Took some little brooks out of the creek behind our camp site Saturday.

With less than 8 weeks to go until  opening  day of spring turkey season. The temps are pretty  cold and I may just be ice fishing, when I set off to the  north  for this years spring season. I'll still brave  the cold streams during the Kalkaska  trout festival. Last year the lakes north   of 72  all had ice, until  the 2nd week of the hunt. The cooler weather did keep most of the mushroom hunters out of the woods.

Looks  like I will be able  to Bass fish this season! I hope the ice is off the lakes, north of 72.

Well I'm ready to go. I've  got my fly rods ready,my steelhead  gear is in my truck. I was told the ice has broken  up on most of the lakes north  of 72, and the wind is still blowing  ice  back and forth  across the lakes. We're  going to hit ElkRapids  and some of the streams between  Frederick  and  Kalkaska. This year I can target  smallmouth,with my fly rod.
