With over 11,000 inland lakes, and 4 of the 5 Great Lakes at our disposal, it is no surprise that so many men and women enjoy fishing in Michigan. Today’s blog is a sweet story of a boy, a steelhead, and an uncle that gets his just desserts.
I think I had just turned 6 years old. That’s when I caught my first steelhead. We were fishing on the Little Manistee River in mid-April…Easter weekend to be exact. I had caught my prized fish, dad had put it on a stringer for me, and I was busy showing my catch off to every fisherman we passed as we made our way downstream.
