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.

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.
