Mikes 10-5/8", 1lb. and 1-3/4 oz Michigan Bluegill

 “My friend Shannon Chambers were fishing at Jordan Lake and got out at our spot to fish at about 1:00pm or so. I noticed that I hadn’t brought out my crickets and had left them in my van back at the landing. After catching a few bluegills on waxworms we decided to go back to the landing and get the crickets in the van. When we got back at our spot for fishing I put on a cricket on a white ant that I had made and I had my bobber go under the water and disappear from the surface. Little did I know how big the bluegill was at the other end of my line and the fight was on! I use the 12′ Shakespeare Crappie Hunter Rods and the rod bent like crazy with the big gill one. When I finally landed the big gill my friend Shannon couldn’t believe the size of it and kept saying ‘man that’s a gigantic bluegill’! It measured 10-5/8″ long and weighed 1lb. and  1-3/4 oz.”

Anthony and his 1st king

“August 26, 2007.  My first ever King Salmon.  Along with a few longtime friends, I headed up to Manistee, MI to fish with Captn. Gramza and Fish R Us Charters.  This had been all of our first-ever charter for salmon.  I had been salmon fishing before along rivers, but never trolling or out on the Great Lakes.  The end of the previous July, my dear friend Bill Parkhurst passed away.  I put the little angle pin I had received when I was one of his pawl bearers onto my hat and said a prayer for all of us for our success.  Bill was a great fisherman and lover of the outdoors, not to mention a very dear friend who I had the pleasure of having spent the day with the evening before he passed.  Long story short…it was Fish r Us’ best day that year!  We all limited out and didn’t loose a single fish.  The Captain even remarked that it was an unbelievable day. Bill, I do believe not only came through…but helped each of us in not loosing a fish that day.  Thanks bill”
