Lake Huron Metal


I haven't fished the world. I haven't managed to chase chromers across the continent. Heck...I haven't fished outside of the Great Lakes Watershed. But what I have managed to do is fish my share of Premiere Steelheading Systems in the Great Lakes Basin. From the St Mary's on Superior down through to the Ganaraska of Lake O what I have found is that Lake Huron Metal ranks at the top of the list. The State of Michigan has done wonders with the Lake Michigan fishery but in it's entirety the fragile wild stock genetics of Lake Huron chromers are supreme. A biologist I am not! I speak only via opinion that is based solely on my experiences but history leads one to believe that these genetics could possibly be traced back to the initial stockings on Michigan's Au sable in 1876.
Lake Huron is not a fishery of grand proportions. The fishery is for individuals who are willing to work long and hard for fish. The fishery is for those that favour the raw untainted beauty of a wild stock fishery. The fishery is for those that can withstand natures elements at the worst possible times of the year to chase their quarry. Most importantly the fishery is for those that can find solace in one fish days as equally as they do with a multiple fish outing.
Lake Huron Steelheading is like drinking a fine Craft Beer. The batches are small and the costs are higher but the rewards certainly taste grand.

Jigs are for HOMOS!

I know...Jigs are for Homo's but they were working outstanding! LOL! I don't fight it any more. I just go with the flow. Once you think you have it all figured out...

I wear the Visor in the shower now. It has grafted itself to my skin.
I have also started to grow horns out my back. Ask Norland!

Great entry Brian. Very nice fish. You are dead on about solace for wild chrome. Thanks for sharing.

I knew the beer reference would flush you out. Drunks are so predictable.

Salmon Trout and Steelheader you say? Hmmmmm

I'm the Homo? As you feverously tie Jigs... LOL!!!!

Next time we go out I'm gonna float lego's. I'm certain 4 nipple red blocks will knock them dead.

For the record...if I had wanted to flush Harv out I'd have made a Whiskey reference. POS rube ;0)

A great treatise on Lake Huron Steelhead Brian. While many prefer to chase numbers or size on the other Great Lakes, there's something special about those wild Huron specimens. My return to the river on Sunday likely marked the end of my '09 season and it could not have been a better finale.

lambton said...

Treatise...off to dictionary.com LOL!

I seen some of Sunday pics from Joe and it looks like your outing was rewarding. Sunday was a nice day to be on the water.

I'm certain you will find a few more opportunities for the 09 Season. Don't loose hope!
