much needed help for Hammer

Hello, Hammer, old friend!! Saw your post for help. Would like to invite you to come over here into the Great Lakes Basin and get some real help from all the guys over here and some REAL STEELHEAD. We over here keep it simple..."down and dirty." Besides the main thing you must realize is that our GL Basin Steelhead are real fresh fish and do not have to "purged" from all that old nasty salt stuff you have over there on the West Coast. Doesn't that make sense to you? I didn't think it would. OK, now we're even...he, he, he! Best to you, Hammer. Stiver

Wouldn't that be a plain ol trout?

I kinda like to fish for fresh run steelhead myself. Fresh from the sea. Not some spawning kipe jawed dog of a trout crawlin up out of a lake full of sewage. :whoa:
