    Hard to believe another salmon season has come and gone here on northern lake Michigan. The last 3 weeks many salmon have left the big lake and entered into the river systems to do their spawning. However that does not mean that you cannot go out on the big water and still catch 1 in 2 year olds on the days that the wind allows you to get out" Shawna Stowers 22 hours ago @Ian O’Shaughnessy can we make sure all our midwest guides have their calendar good to go with seasonality this winter :face_with_cowboy_hat: 1
