Thanks, ran to the store for a few things. Its cold here now. When checking out the Walgreen Drugstore, there at the sale table were large bags of Gummi Bears . 2 for $ 5.00 !!! I hope that was not a bad omen for me ??
No I did not buy any, my motto is "Live by the fly, die by the fly"
Not used bait for steelies since 1980 when I was desparate to catch one. Used live hex wigglers, lost a couple with them. Then went all flies only for them in 1981.
I will probably run into snow on the drive to Michigan tonight.
Full report will be forthcoming, probably should write a story of these hallowed waters.
