Ron Gedemer Says…
Had an interesting fishing/outdoor experience yesterday. Went fishing on Lake Michigan. 2 degrees when they attempted to put to put the boat in. Wind chill -10 to – 15. Took 35 minutes of breaking ice to launch. Then they had to break ice through the breakwater to get to the lake.
A1 Big Fish Charters. Capt Mike Hanke. The first mate Jim was worth the trip by himself. These guys are two tough nuts. They also know their business. They did say it was the coldest they have been out this year. Can’t tell you the number of times I said to myself – these guys aren’t really going to do this – only to find I was underestimating the company I was in.
No surprise, we were the only boat on the lake. Caught either 16 or 17 browns, ranging in size from a couple lbs to several around 15 lbs. They usually limit out – said yesterday was slow. We come in and the temp is about 15, wind chill still below zero. They decide to clean the fish, clean all the coolers, etc.

Sounds a little crazy but a great adventure. Would do it again in a second. But my arms are so stiff I can barely move them.
