Michigan

My wife and I differed more than somewhat on how much of our Michigan trip should involve fishing. I opted for the "more" approach. She was on the other side of that fence and you can probably guess where things landed.

But there was some fishing. All of it for carp and all of it good. I didn't see the carp holy waters of Beaver Island as I had hoped, but what I did see was pretty damn stellar. McTage over at Fly Carpin' spent some time in Michigan back in the day and was good enough to steer me to his buddy Miles up there. Turns out Miles knows about a little holy water of his own:







Not sure how many we landed, but I'll say a "a bunch" and leave it at that. We only scaled one fish and it tipped out at 9.4 lbs in the net. Not much of a baseline, but let's go with it and say we caught a few smaller than that and a few larger.

Some miscellaneous notes:

-Miles' green crawfish fly was absolute money all day long .

-Presentation was important. You couldn't (usually) just swing the fly down to the fish and get the take. You had to get your mends and reaches in some kind of working order to slow the fly down, get a straight downstream drift and feed those slobs.

-The water was largely deserted. A couple of guys did drop a drifter into the river off what appeared to be a small cliff. Sounded like, well, I'm not sure what it sounded like, but it was loud. They seemed to know what they were doing though, so we just shrugged our shoulders and kept fishing.

-I was surprised that at least a few of these carp didn't put the current at their backs and take off downstream when hooked. Almost without fail the fish headed for any nearby brush, downed trees, etc. "Lumber", Miles called it.  As in "Gotta keep 'em out of the lumber."

Nice...Neat looking water.

Prelude to the big C, 2013.

Matt said...

Looks like paradise. Wet wading for summer carp in a beautiful river!

Miles said...

It was a blast. Call the next time your in town and we'll do it again.

Roydn Hisatake Jr said...

People wonder why we go for carp. That bend in the rod says it all.

Brent Wilson said...

Nice. Those are some damn good fish.

Miles said...

And I was using the 8 wt that day.

Ty said...

Big C 2013 - yeah man. I'm stoked.

Gotta admit, Matt, it was pretty great.

Got you on speed dial Miles! You'll be the first call I make next time I head up there.

No doubt Roydn. That 8 wt Miles was using spent most of the day bent to the cork!

Thanks Brent. Definitely some bruisers in there. Good stuff.

Bill Trussell said...

Ty
Outstanding catch, all one has to see the bend it that rod to know you guys had a blast. Thanks for sharing

Gregg said...

Great fishing Ty!

Looked like the lower waters of one of many steelhead/salmon streams, deserted in the summer months. I'd say you didn't need Beaver Island and it may have been a bust anyway that day. Or not, but you did well where you were. Cool!

Trevor Tanner said...

So glad it worked out, looks like a blast and Miles is always great to fish with. I didn't tell you ahead of time but that is where I caught my first carp on the fly ever. The water was roaring that week. When it is they really use it to thier advantage and I am pretty sure I remember 0 for my first ten over a two week span before I caught that first one!

Ty said...

Yeah Bill, we did have a blast. I'm still not sure how my 7 wt. survived some of the bends those carp put in it.

It was a superb piece of water, Gregg. If someone told me I could fish only that one stretch of river for the rest of my life, I'd be fine with that.

Hey Trevor, Thanks again for putting me in touch with Miles. Had a lot of fun fishing with him. Gonna be bugging the crap out of him to go fishing every time I'm up there. And honestly, I thought I was going to go 0 for 10 at first. Those are some big smart carp.

Carp Fishing said...

What an alluring fishing environment. The carp fishes are very nice to look at. I am also a fan of carp fishes and Carp fishing.These clean water fishes are very attractive. For this reason I like Carp fishing very much. However thanks again for such a nice blog and posts.
