You do realize it’s a 14-day quarantine. I’ll do two weeks for $1999 and run you out of business. 😂

Seeing as I legitimately work for a COVID team, I could actually probably get away with this 🤣

Where do I send my money??

you want my address?

Steve Yager reports from Houghton Lake Began the morning casting in North Bay looking for Walleye, only 1 small LMB. Then heading out to the Elbow in the main lake, West side of lake, nothing, stopping at 9 different spots,I have marked. Nothing. Finally at the 9 spot, about 11:30 am, the gill bite started, 5 we’re very quick bites, it was over by 1pm, then small gills moved in, and kept stealing my Leeches, a fish were on Leeches, under a Rocket Bobber. In 9’ of water, about 6’ down. Nice size gills, definitely another Dinner in the Freezer 😁. Water temperature was 69° to 72° west side of main lake. #houghtonlake #panfish #puremichigan #livebait #leechfishing #michiganfish #northernmichigan #fishing See MoreSee Less
