Oscoda, Michigan Master Angler Top 5

Oscoda Michigan



I live on a lake in Northern Lower Peninsula of Michigan and one sunny afternoon was fishing with a perch minnow and caught this beauty. She was a female that had just spawned somewhere out on the lake. After this photo I released her and she ended up hanging out under out boat dock. I later noticed that all of her fry were under our boat dock as well. Pretty neat to catch and release and have an entry in as a Master Angler.Regards,Jeff Raybourn
