It's only a week and a half away, guys!  Fishing around Marquette has been very good lately for both Lake Trout and Salmon! 

Maybe I could get someone scan and post the flyer that went out in the mail to all previous participants.  Then people wanting to fish this for the first time can print one out in advance!

Who's coming to fish the "Fall Classic" on Sept 8th?

Looks like that nasty little 4 letter word w-o-r-k is going to keep the captain of the Superior Sun team from attending the tourney this weekend. SSSOOOOOOO that means I will be available if the tourney officals need any help on shore. Willing to help out all day with whatever needs to be done. Get ahold of me through the site or at 250.8668

I'm sure they could use you to do boat checks in the morning, Aaron!  I think they're a little short at the Upper Harbor Launch and Presque Isle Marina!  I would PM Mylan (MAK) if you want to know for sure....
