Kayaking for salmon-coming soon

   Another year and another summer that has gone by far too quickly. Hunters are starting to feel the itch to get back into the woods or field to chase game. Archery hunters are slowly getting bows tuned and checked up for the coming season.
   Anglers have no thoughts of pulling boats or shrink wrapping them for the winter months when they will sit idle until next springs launch day.
   Kayak fishermen are looking forward to hooking into a salmon early this fall on Lake Michigan. They are as eager and excited as any bass fishermen gets prior to opening day or deer hunter waiting o go north for chance at a large rack.
   For guys like me who prefer to kind of ride along in a kayak, this type of fishing is made for us. The speed a yak travels while being paddled is just about the right one to attract salmon.
   So that means a trolling bite. I've heard different guys say they use spoons, swear by crank baits, and anything else that dives deep.
   This will be my third Salmon Slam and about the only thing I've been able to slam is the beach when I land and manage to tip my boat part way over.
   But the weather has always been great despite an occasional shower, and a bit of wind. The rest of the time Lake Michigan has been nice to us.
