Manistee Challenge
by Adam Trenz
On March 30th the Metro West and Detroit Area Steelheaders have our annual get together for a Spring Steelhead Challenge!
As in years in past, things will pretty much be the same. Folks have the freedom to fish where they please; on the pier, beach, or river. Boats fishing below the Insta-launch railroad bridge are not eligible.
You can start fishing as early as 6:00AM, and we will come together for the weigh-in at 5:00pm. The weigh in location will be Traks Bar and Grill, located at 5073 High Bridge Road, in Brethren. PLEASE DO NOT BE LATE – You be disqualified after 5PM!
A simple tally of total weight between the two clubs will determine the 2019 Spring Steelhead Challenge winning club. Steelhead/Rainbows are the only eligible species with a minimum size of 15” to be considered for weigh-in.
Big Fish: For those that wish to participate, we will have a $5 big fish pot with 100% payout to the largest Steelhead by weight - regardless of whether it was river or beach/pier caught. If you wish to be included in the big fish pot, please contact me, or Bob Paradise at (586) 457-4073 no later than 12:00pm on 3/29.
Food: We will do a dinner after the weigh-in at Traks.
Hopefully that covers it all, and I hope to see many familiar faces, and a few new ones up on the Manistee!!!
