I got to cross off one more thing on my "bucket list" today. I have always wanted to catch a big fish. We are still novices at this Mackinaw fishing but we have talked to quite a few people who have caught one and everyone has a different method for catching big "Macs" at Fish Lake. After I caught this one this morning, Carl told me that he has been humoring me by buying me a new reel for my pole and helping me troll for my big fish. Never in his wildest dreams did he think I would actually catch one!
