Fish Mauler - I saw you guys at the bend as I was leaving yesterday at about 620pm did you get that beast before that or after that? Judging from the pic it looks like more sun than we had in the late afternoon - what time did you tag that pig?

NICE FISH MAN!!!!

Any chance of you snapping a pic of that bait you used?

Fished the north basin from about 7pm to 11pm. Casted all kinds of glow spoons without even a hit. I saw one king caught right when I got there, then nothing else.

There were a few fish jumping, but not many.

Good luck out there

Was going for some fall salmon, very slow, some chasing brown trout, seem to be most interested in orange/silver spoon. Been going at all times of the day recently. In a couple of weeks the coho should be coming in closer. But right now, very slow.

I think I'm going to head over tomorrow early morning and give it a shot with some glow spoons. I'll post how I do if I can drag myself out of bed.

Has there been any action that anyone's willing to report?

With all the west winds we have had all week, I would get out on the end of Government Pier or the south rocks early and cast spoons. I'll bet there are some feeding salmon in close enough to catch, especially at first light.

Curious if anything is being caught off the pier salmon or trout wise. I was doing pretty good on coho until Mothers day, when work took me away.

I figure it's still too early for the kings, but any info would be great. Not looking for specifics as far as lures or times, just if it would be worth it to head out there some weekend soon.

Hey guys, I'm a newbie here. Have been coming up to Waukegan to fish once or twice a year for the last couple years. Gonna give it a go this weekend and was just lookin for insight on the salmon catch lately. (Where, how deep, and what they might be hitting on) Any help would be greatly appreciated. Heck, if ya got good info, I'll even buy ya a couple of cold ones. Big Smile

Hey guys, looking to get into fishing for salmon and trout and figured it be a good idea to try and learn from someone who knows a little bit about what they are doing when it comes to going after them on the big water. I am fairly flexible with my time so, week days, evenings, and weekends usually work. I have some experience so l would definitely be able to help setting up and putting out lines, and putting everything away properly at the end. I guess what I'm trying to say is I wont be completely useless. Its just the tricks and tips part I'm trying to pick up on of which I am currently not worthy of.

Hopefully I can find a regular mentor but if its just filling an occasional space that is fine too. Thanks in advance and tight lines.

There are walleyes around but few & far between. Know one really targets them around here. You might have better luck going to Vegas and playing reulette.
