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.

eye seeker, it might be worth your time. There are fish to be caught, but it's not on fire.

Walleye Will- check your pms.

Believe there are more browns in Wis harbors. Wauk has some also. Probably use two poles, one with live bait,one casting. Browns usually caught in Wauk also.

Winthrop Harbor has a limited area to fish from shore I believe. One main pier in the boat harbor area.

ajhallfr: If you go to Govt Pier, the Salmon Stop Eastis right in the little square to the north of the harbor. Hot dog and ice cream shop across the way. Hours should be posted on the door. Sometimes they don't open too early in the spring, especially if the perch aren't being caught.

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or tips for fishing spring lake Michigan Lakers and browns when they are close to shore. Also I was wondering what harbor would probably be better for them. Any info helps. Feel free to pm me with info.

Will reply on this weekend's trip on monday

It was slow on the pier today. I saw one coho caught by some powerliners, and that was it.

On another note, would anyone be willing to share the current hours of the Salmon Stop? I keep calling, but I'm not getting an answer.

Made it out today around noon (I admit, not the best time) for about 3 hours of casting off Government Pier. Ended up with one cookie cutter coho on a cleo about half way down the pier.

I'm going to try to make it out again, early tomorrow.

What's the good word from the piers? I'm giving some serious thought to heading over that way Monday late morning.

I'm new to this whole pier fishing thing, but I want to give Government and/or Johnson pier a try this spring. I'm not asking for lures, hot spots, I'm just curious if there is a charge to get onto either of these piers?

Thanks

Is the ice off the big lake or is there some to be avoided out there? Was thinking of going to oak creek power plant up north.
