Went there Weds morning for perch and got 9 dinks on the outside wall. Used minnows and soft shell crabs. Also got 3 rock bass. As far as the salmon goes I saw one guy bring in 2 on the powerline and another guy bring in one casting spoons. Good luck out there.

Fished 9-11pm. One bite but it didn't hook. Saw some fish jumping just outside the harbor. Nobody caught anything.

Has anyone seen any King's near shore yet this year? If so, what bait do you recommend? Spoon (Red eye? Lil Cleo? or Crocodile?) Mepps (#3,4, or 5?) Cranks? other?

Looking to catch my first King before I move out of the city next month...

Thanks!

Fished montrose on sunday..Set up at 6 and stayed till the hawks game started at 11 ,action was slow all day, it was just to nice out..Caught 2 and had 2 shake off all on cralwers...Fish seem to hit lite and you really had to watch the lines as they seem to be swimming in with the bait and all you would have is slack line with no bell..Talked to a few regs out there and saturday was much better with limits being taken..Saw a few browns caught on smelt or large minnows.Great day to be on the lakefront

We are getting off the wall on powerlines, minnows work best but a few on crawlers.
