    NIce to be back it has been a while. I got into a job that I never got a day off last year (Not complaning ,very grateful) so did very little cattin'. Layed off now,lol so next week I'm going to the maple to try and do some good.Went at the end of august last year and the 4 year old caught two channels that we're twenty inches long.She's catching on quick. Best luck just casting nightcrawlers on bobbers next to brush piles.Could be of an evening or high noon and 90+ degrees always seems to work. Doesn't take long if their there either.I'll keep you posted.

    I can relate to what your saying about work. I went from working 65-70 hr work week to nothing. It's an awesome thing that you fish with your kids man, never stop learning from each other. God bless!

    Rick, it dumps into the Grand River in Lyons/Muir area. Far away from Lapeer :0a4:.

    Rick, Guy is right. It's a chocolate milk colored river,flows slow, and is maybe forty yards wide in spots. My dad use to take me there when I was a kid and we always did well. trying to ingrain my girls with outdoor experiences then with the tv and computer.
