4/21/11 - Muskegon River

The plan for the day was to investigate a few new areas for steelhead.  What we didn't expect was to have a run in with a hefty brown.  Fishing below a steelhead spawning area Trevor was in for a surprise.  He had been fishing a leech pattern tied by his big brother and was met on the swing by a big tug.  A couple jumps later, a few dances around the boat, and an adrenaline shot, we netted this fine fish.  Measured 26" and weighed 4.5 lbs.  Wow!  It took a couple hours for Trevor to come down from that one.  We caught some steelies as well but they were peasants among this king.
