Pere Marquette fishing report -July 24th- part II

So Jeff never got a big brown on a mouse. You can see the average fish he landed below. Not a bad fish, but not the one you’re looking for after dark throwing mammals. But that’s fine, because he did catch a steelhead. On a mouse. In late July.

This fish grabbed the mouse and immediately ripped upstream at about 100mph and right away I knew it wasn’t a brown. It jumped several times in shallow water and almost beached itself twice. Jeff did a great job fighting her and got her to the net in less than a minute. I’m guessing it was a random summer run. The ultimate bonus on a mouse. Nice job Jeff.
