I WAS NEVER MUCH OF AN ACCOMPLISHED FISHERMAN. But the joy that fishing brought me was simply undeniable.
Pursuing freshwater fish using a night crawler or colorful lure on a monofilament line is a passion for me. Even a nibble or a trembling bobber excites and entertains me for hours on end. I also point to the adrenaline that kicks in with the sound that comes when the drag initiates announcing a fish is on the line. That magical sound sure stimulates me – like Pavlov’s dog salivating when conditioned to the sound of its dinner bell.
Our M-22 region has wonderful rivers and streams and an abundance of crystal-clear inland lakes that will eventually make their way to the vast waters of Lake Michigan. They are all around and they all have fish, and some offer hidden spots to greet the lone wolf among us that simply wants to cast a line and enjoy the solitude found in Michigan's great out-of-doors.
