What a difference a year can make. Last year at this time I was having a blast catching lots of nice Rainbow up in the Porcupine Bay area, this year not so much. We had 4 bites and boated 3 Rainbows a...

Well I don't know what I'm doing wrong but at a bare minimum you would have to say that at the very least I must be holding my mouth wrong. Encouraged by WalleyMark's report I headed for Porcupine an...

Well once again we made it to the water but still didn't really connect. Found some decent Walleye but the wind made staying on top of them pretty difficult. We kept hoping the wind would let up so st...

Skunked! Beat down, Rejected, Thumped. Ok so I know that's why it's called fishing and not catching. I get that but it seems like a statistical anomaly that we could go all day without a bite. What a...
