    The Mrs. and I spent the weekend at the backwaters of the Big Manistee and had a great time. We tried for walleyes and did not do well but
    Saturday night we went out from 9:30 to 1am and came home with three nice channel cats. The Mrs. accounted for all three, I did get to bait hooks, net fish, untangle the line from the net and managed to get to feel the serrations of the front fin along the back of my thumb. But thats fishing. We had a great time even though we had a couple storms blow through that muddied up the water. We watched an eagle catch his lunch about a hundred yards from our boat, and sat in the boat when the full moon came up while catfishing. GREAT TIME.
