Hit Detroit with a couple of friends yesterday afternoon.

Rented a boat from the Detroit Lake Marina and trolled for 3 hours and put 6 trout in the boat. 1 or 2 of them were decent sized.

Returned the boat and hit the flats for my favorite evening feeding frenzy and we were pulling them in hand over fish, I mean fist :D

I fish there a lot but have never pulled that many decent sized native trout off the bank in one sitting.

We came back a little illegal. :naughty: There were 4 of us and I cleaned 21 fish at 11:30pm last night. Of course one of them was so small it shouldn't really count.

Detroit has always been my favorite lake and it was a great day out there.

Fair warning, they will probably be stocking it heavily this week because the annual Derby is this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There will be a lot of hatchery fish in the lake. I haven't been to the Derby since 2001 so I don't know what the crowds are like anymore. I saw the list of prizes though and if I wasn't already booked for a Halibut trip next weekend, I would be going.

Sounds like you had a great day out there. So any idea how much the derby cost per person to enter in I might think about taking my seven year old girl out there for some fun.
