Republic Sportsman’s Club fishing derby, Republic, Michigan, by John Fabina

This weekend, we headed up to a fishing tourney on the Michigamme River, in Michigan Upper Peninsula.
As always, Wavewalk kayaks attracted a lot of attention. I love talking to people about these super kayaks.
We didn’t catch any whoppers but we had fun with the “Yoopers”, and we got some Northern Pike action. Eagles in the sky added to the beauty of the day.

    Thanks John,

    Awesome trip report! You should probably get yourself a camera with a strong zoom lens, to shoot wildlife, etc.

    Great story, although you guys didn’t catch big fish, you had a good time together, and that’s priceless. 🙂
