I did some trout fishing here in MO a few days ago and realized I needed a few more lures  before I come to Michigan.  I picked those up at Wally World today.  I've got some streams picked out around the Harrison area that I will try.  Are there any rules I should know about as far as lures.  I'm used to using little Rapalas for trout and spinners with treble hooks.  Just want to be prepared if there's any rules about hooks.  Barbless?  No trebles?

I'd download the fishing guide from the dnr site to be sure. Your going to need a non resident license to fish here.

Thanks Jeff.  I have the site open for the license right now.  I'm guesing I'll have to get a week license.

Bill, I looked and just as all other states seem to be doing for the last 20 years MI really soaks the non-resident for licensing fees. My state is worse than most I'm sure. MI gets $10./day or $75/yr and you can get it online, not sure if you need to print it out or can just keep it on your phone, which my state allows. I did not see the one week license, that would be more better. I found the fess here: https://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,4570,7-350-79119_79146_82448---,00.html and that page also has links to various regs.
 
 I am wondering what day you plan to arrive at hidden Hill. I hadn't planned on bringing gear, but I suppose I could, just don't think I will have time unless we arrived a day earlier than we planned by driving straight through. If my wife finds something to keep her interested, I might be persuaded to tag along even if I don't fish. I have been known to spend a very enjoyable day just poking around and flipping over rocks near waterways. ;D ( I am easily amused.)
 Oh and, you NEVER have enough lures, everybody knows that!

Tom, I will be arriving on Monday evening and plan to fish tuesday, wednesday and thursday.  I imagine I will do a lot of driving around looking for spots since I don't have any insider info.

Well in the past I have found walking around a populated campground can be a fruitful source of local information. Good luck, I'm sure you will have it figured out by the time I get there.

Jeff & Tammi,
Although my wife & I have only attended one of your pig roasts it was / has been a good memory to have as part of our lives. While wanting to attend several times over the past few years, life had other plans. This year even with such a late notice / decision it looks as though we me be able to make the 30 minute drive to attend this year.

Rental cars are still unavailable at an affordable price, I just don't think paying enough to own a car for just a few days use is a good financial plan.

I will be flying into Chicago Thursday morning 5 August, and heading toward Harrison.

Somewhere not to long ago someone mentioned that renting a moving van was easier and cheaper.

Trapper, thanks for the kind offer, I will be arriving on Wednesday and staying till Sunday so I have sadly realized "buying" a rental car is the most convenient way to get to the Pig Roast.  

GAB great idea and I seriously considered Uhaul.

I looked into Private rental cars, getting a truck from Uhaul, and taking the train or bus to mid state Michigan then walking, jogging, and skipping my way to Harrison.  Uhaul was the cheapest at $350 for four days, private was next at $400, and a rental car was $436.  Getting to Uhaul or the private with luggage, a big heavy box full of fragile stuff and me was more trouble than it was worth.  The rental car place was at the airport, and a shuttle bus would provide me transportation to pick it up so the convenience sealed the deal.  

I GET TO ATTEND THE PIG ROAST !!!!  See y'all there.

First time attending. Looking forward to this. Saw the food itinerary. Is there a sign up for other food and such to bring? Is there a donation hat? What do you need? Thanks. See you Friday!
