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.

Fished the Government pier today of course with no luck. But hey it's early and it was worth a try. One thing I've never understood is why guys launch a boat and either troll right next to the pier where the powerliners are or they drive 100 mph across your lines like the lake itself is not big enough! One boat out the entire day and he could not control himself to just utilize the WHOLE rest of the lake and leave the pier guys alone. Every spring us pier guys have to deal with this and it just is so hard to believe that you drag your boat all the way to the lake and launch and then fish or drive up and down along the pier where guys are fishing. Can someone tell me what's up with that?

Just purchased a new boat- 1650 (2014) Crestliner Fishhawk. Curious to see if someone has the similar boat and managed to add on downriggers through the protrack system.

Any ideas would be great.
