    Muskegon River, Michigan

    The Muskegon holds a good population of Browns... and some nice 'Bows as well... they don't measure up to Western expectations but we like 'em just the same...





    The scenery does not suck. Here's a shot of my buddy in his ClackaCraft at "Highbanks"





    Capt. Bill with a nice littlte Brown that rose to a caddis...





    And the prize of the trip (and my season!): A River Brown (have to distiguish between River Browns and their much larger cousins that go out into the Big Lake return to spawn)... this one went just under 4 pounds - my personal best...





    Heading back up to that area for Kings in a couple weeks... but now we roll in his 18 foot Jet Drive River Sled Need rain and cooler temps please!

    Nice Fish.

    Let me know when you head up for Kings, I'll be up there too shore fishing w/a flyrod.

    We're going to the Big Man 10/6 & 10/7... the boat's full or I'd have ya join us. I'll give ya a holla - if you're on the Big Man we can hook up for lunch / beers (we run a grill of the side the boat in the fall... mmmm Brats n Beers!) If nothing else suds after fish.

    ps - we use flyrods to chuck n duck for kings...

    Wow you two! VERY impressive.


    Did you let them go?

    Oh and I am a huge fan of the pink rod (or is it pole???).

    We released them D. Even my VASTLY larger bass than Sprite's.
    Sprite has me beat on quantity. The girl's a fish magnet.
    Oh yeah, the reel is pink...pole, rod,..as long as it's pink

    I even have a pink and purple mepps-type spinner lure that perfectly matches the pole, but they don't seem to be striking it.

    I swear these Vermont fish have no fashion sense at all!

    no picks to share but the browns are really starting to get hungry again in N. VT now that the water temps have dropped. Landed 6 decent sized(~12 inches) in about 1.5 hrs last night.

    I have never caught a trout!

    What are you using? Are you fishing lake or river? Any hints where to cast or what I can use? I am not fly-fishing, just that pink regular set-up.

    Yesterday was cold, windy and a storm was pushing through. I had the night off and went to rip some lip.



    I got skunked but my buddy caught this nice Brown.



    Nice outfit. Goofy but perfect for the day.




    He dropped it in the mud. Nice



    We got rained on and blown off the lake in under an hour.

    Not big, but pretty, and hopefully still swimming around where I caught it.

    I'm fishing in some of the rivers and brooks up here in N. VT. I'm using worms most of the time for trout, crude but effective. But they will hit spinners too.

    I went out again this morning for about 2 hrs and caught another 4 or 5 browns all right around a foot long. I only took one pick and have not gotten it off the camera yet.

    as for where to cast, you'll find brook trout in fast, clear cold water. Browns like deeper slower moving pools but will somtimes be in fast water.

    look for spots where the fast water mellows into deep pools as well as overhanging banks.

    Thanks for the info Vin! I cast some spinners into the river @ quechee gorge on Sunday. I could see two trout... one 8 inch and one 12 inch. I tried a mepps aglia, a rooster tail, one of those "joe's flys" a teeny silver castmaster, and a black fury w/ white feather tail.

    They watched me cast, popped open a few brews, and laughed their trouty asses off at me. Nothin!

    What do I STINK? Ugh!!! I'm going to try again, but I thought I was hitting areas as you describe.

    Consolation: I did catch an 18" largemouth bass on Saturday. That was the most huge-ass freshwater fish I ever caught! I was actually afraid to hold him by the lip, I thought he might kill me. Anyway, it was very cool...and he was released back into the super secret location from which he came.

    Didn't get a decent shot of him unfortunately, but it was the same size as the one Train07 is holding a few posts up from this.

    Well, it was super secret until you screamed across the entire lake about the monster you caught. I saw gapers on shore taking notes.

    If you can see them, they can see you... trout are very skittish. Try some worms, like I said crude but effective.
