As Jay's post on the 8th attested, the Muskegon River is running high and off color.  My youngest son Ryan and his ex-Marine bud Ken joined me for a day of steelhead fishing on the MO.  Fishing was challenging due the high flow and dark...

When I learned that Dave and sons Ross and Ryan had some major coin on who would boat top weight, I realized that if the steelhead didn't cooperate pretty quickly, it would be major salmon time.  We gave the chrome a good four hours, but...
