The darn plug was almost as big as him but still any fish on your line is a good fish.
The other boat fared a little better with Norland tying into a small coho which eventually made it to the barbecue and supper table.
Day two we decided to hit the Pere Marquette fly zone area for some Chinook or what ever wanted to tease our lines
Brian and Norland went up river while Arnold and I went down. I luck in to finding a pod of Chinook in a small pool under some trees for protection. Not being prepared and didn't have my go pro on I hooked up with a nice Chinook using a green Oscar hex missing out in a good opportunity to for some good video. What a lot of fun got one jump then I was able to land it on shore, take a quick picture and released back to complete its journey on the river.
I had a couple more fish on but were fowed hooked so I straightened my line for a long release and let them continue on their way unscathed.
Brian landed a nice little smolt rainbow for his efforts, then the rains came and we decide to go for lunch.
We decided to try another spot on the Pere Marquette but the river was way to busy and decided to cut our loses and go back the the cottage for some R and R.
Well Day three I was worn out and decided to make a quick break to beat the bridge traffic back into Canada. The others stay and Arnold decide to take one more stab at Tippy dam to get his trophy.
Well cant wait for the upcoming steelies season to happen in late Oct with the boats all set up ready to roll.
