Happy Thanksgiving

Here’s what’s going on.

The steelhead fishing in the big river has been going on pretty decent and actually getting better now with the colder temps.

Fish sizes in the 15-17 lb range , the biggest i heard on the river this year was 24 lbs.. So if its size your looking for come on up and lets go get one..

December is my favorite month, lots of fish and no one on the river. We will be running floats behind the boat. We also have the lodge open so easy place to crash the night before.

Also, it’s time to start thinking about your spring break plans. Islamorada, Florida is calling your name. Come down and do some fishing with me (Capt:Lance Keene) this spring (Jan 23-may 31) for some exciting saltwater action. Tarpon, snappers, snook, tuna and so much more. This is a must do trip. I can help you with lodging, flights and what to do and see. Come down and enjoy the beautiful water and warm weather this spring with Steelhead Hunter Charters.

We will be at the novi fishing show Jan 11-14 New booth location this year (will post booth number when I find out)

We have new apparel for sale, hooded sweatshirts , long sleeve shirts and hats.

Open dates for December river fishing dec-2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,17,18,19,20,21,29,30
