      not sure if Erie and Michigan are much different, but the boat I was on yesterday has limited pretty quick each day for a week straight. I only made it out once ...more as it is 2 hours from where I live, but we hit the final 13 (15 if you count the shorts) in the last 30 minutes.

I grew up with a rod in my hand and a trout on my line. I had gotten away from it for a while, but within the last year and a half I have gotten ...more back to it. I still love trout fishing, but now I have opened up to any and everything that will bite.
