Well... A little longer break from the box than I had anticipated when I last wrote, but to be honest, it felt good to not worry about the internet much for a few weeks and until very recently, not much had changed anyway. Warning: This one's kind of long and is more or less a summery of what I've been up to since last report with some what of a fishing report at the end.
Because of that I'll just leave a link for those interested and not take up allot of space on a "fishing reports" page. ;)
Here's the link if you like (http://www.fishbaldwin.com/Reports/Reports.cfm) and have a great season all!

Hi Steve...In your post i beleive you mentioned the little manistee river holding fish. I have never fished that river, but was wondering if you would be kind to share some knowledge of where perhaps to fish it. i have been fishing the PM for years but want to know some other spots, last year i fished the white for the first time and did great. but other than that i would like to know the little manistee pretty well. any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you

Welcome back steve thanks for the update :)
BTW i read your respone to the guy that was posting about you&the shop and dont let it get to ya,i have always felt welcome in BBT more than any other shop in the baldwin area. Some people like that guy are just looking for someone to "bash" and they do it over the internet instead of face to face because they are afraid to do it in person.
You guys have always given help to people and are very free with the information and your customers know that so dont let it get to ya ;)

Maybe he was just having a bad day or Maybe it was busy at the shop and things just didn't go as well as he expected. Everyone is always nice to me when I am in the shop. Also, if I ask one of the guys to show me how to do something; I would like them to go through every detail in explanation. If I ask, it's because I don't know. I'd rather have all the info then only some of it and leave the store lost and thinking to myself........What did he say?
I used to deal with the public. There are really a lot of good people out there. But man...there are always that few that you can't please no matter what. Sounds like if you took a shat in that guys hat, he would complain about that too. HEHE!!

I have been reading your reports for more than a year and look forward to them. I have fished the PM now for three years and we areplanning a return trip this year. My partners were using hotntots when we started and we didn't really have much luck. After spying some guides rigs, I noticed the thundersticks and we have excellent success with those. You said in your latest report that you were using spinners. Could you expand on that a little and tell me what size and color you find works best. I am not a die hard fisherman...yet, so I don't have dozens in my box from which to try. Also, we have found most of our luck comes with the perch or firetiger thundersticks...any reason for that or is just a coincidence.
We are planning on being up on the 11th of Sept. We are staying an extra two days, so I plan on finding the shop and meeting at least some of the staff.
Thanks for everything and keep up the great work.
