Lake Michigan Whitefish

Made a trip to the Green Bay, WI area on Saturday with Avidfly and TonyS.  Fishing a spoon/slider fly rig I managed to catch five lake whitefish.  Others were caught by Tony and Avid, and we enjoyed a great day on the ice while learning a few tidbits about this awesome fish.  This was the most successful whitefishing I had ever experienced.  Four of my fish were caught on a small swedish pimple fished right on the bottom, and one took a small orange scud fly.

Well, won't be making it out

Well, won't be making it out due to the Mackinaw Bridge being closed due to weather :(

Bummer that you couldn't go.

Bummer that you couldn't go.  This last weather event screwed a lot of stuff up, including my plans to be at the International Eelpout Festival right now.  The roads were just plain undrivable today!
