J & J River Guide Service Compliment - Great River Fishing Guide!!!!
LESLIE, MICHIGAN -- If anyone is looking for a great river fishing guide in Michigan I highly recommend J & J River Guide Service!!! A few weeks ago my Dad and I went out on the Manistee River with river guide John Hunter to try and catch some Steelhead. Our day was not looking promising weather-wise, it was predicted to be sunny and hot, which is nice for relaxing in, but not good for steelhead fishing. The area guides had been reporting very slow days all week, but John wasnt going to let us go home empty handed. Within 5 minutes of launching the boat we had a nice coho salmon in the boat and it never let up from there. By 1:00 we had six salmon and a brown trout in the boat, all nice size, but John was determined to get us some steelhead. He used his vast knowledge of the river (hes been fishing it 25 years!!!) to find us some holes with steelhead in them and boy did he ever!!!
I reeeled in a 18-1/2lb steelhead which qualified me for a master anglers award in Michigan and my Dad got a 16-1/2lb one within 10 minutes of me. It was the best day fishing I have had in my 18 yrs of fishing!!! John was a great guy to fish with, very knowledgable, friendly, and a great net man!!!As I said before I highly recommend this company for a great fishing experience!!!!!
