2016 Walleyes are here!

Welcome back spring. It was a long and challenging winter. First of all, I lost one of my best fishing buddies unexpectedly. Kenny left us to fish the heavenly waters above and look down on us when we are on the Rock N Reel. “Big Orange or Salty” almost had as many trips on the Rock N Reel as I had, he never missed a chance. We will miss you Kenny!

On to brighter topics, the walleye are here and abundant. The DNR has lowered the size and increased the limit per person. We need to take fish out of Saginaw Bay – as there are too many and they are running out of food. We will be keeping 13″ walleyes on the Rock N Reel and doing our part to better our fishery.

The first trip of the year was really good. Big fish and good numbers. While the size will not hold up all season, the numbers should be good.

I hope to see you on the Rock N Reel this summer.
