1-3 October 2005

Well the 1st day of the fishing trip did not go as planned, when we got to Lake Michigan @ 730am the waves were 3-4 feet. So we went to plan "B", that was the Kalamazoo river, we put in by M-89 just before Fennville.  We paddled 2 1/2 miles upstream and the only thing we caught was a Bass.

Day 2 was not much better, we did finally make it on Lake Michigan and we paddled about 9 1/2 miles, not one bite.  No one on the pier was catching fish that day.

Day 3 we fished the Kalamazoo River again by the Allegan Dam, it was the same story again one Bass and no Salmon again.

I think the warm weather missed up the fishing this trip.
