 Wow! Everything was looking good for weekend of fishing for lake monsters until the wind changed today. Looks like the whole week is shot by the weather pattern. I really wanted silver for the smoker.

That's a heck of a time frame, between now and ice up. Let me know when you pick a date and ill point you in the right direction.  You do need a Great Lakes trout salmon stamp if you plan on targeting trout or salmon.

I had success fishing by the lighthouse from shore yesterday. I went out during lunch and in less than an hour caught a 6 lb coho and a small brown trout - about 15 inches using a silver 3/8 ounce zip lure.

There were eight other guys out there. One guy had two lines out with medium gold shiners under bobbers and caught a nice brown - about 5lbs - just before I got there. He was about half way down the pier facing the lake. Another guy caught three browns in four or so hours with small gold shiners on the bottom near the light house. Another guy lost a fish on gold shiners under bobbers. One other guy caught a small brown on a champ. I was the only guy with a coho, but the fishing definitely picked up as of recently. Its funny, I'm having more luck in the middle of the day, then going early morning, or into the night.

Fished from shore at McKinley Thursday night from 7pm to 11pm. Heavy east winds and poor water clarity = 0 fish. I was casting glow spoons and had shiners soaking. Didn't see anyone else catching anything - there was 5-8 fisherman at any given time.

Went again last night from 5:30 until 8:30. It was supposed to be west winds all day. Got out there and found strong east winds and 2-4ft waves. Fished from 5:30pm until about 9pm with glow spoons, zip lures and soaking shiners. Saw about 20 guys out there. Zero fish - zero hits. Only saw two fish on stringers, and none were caught (that I could see) during the time I was there. Didn't see anything caught from boats and yaks trolling or jigging the north gap in and out of the harbor either.

I will be out there twice a week until Nov., hopefully weather and fish cooperate at some point during that stretch.

Got out today from 7am - 2:30pm. Fished from shore on the rocks at the end of the break wall across from McKinley pier. Soaked skein and chartreuse spawn sacs under a slip float anywhere from 6-20 feet deep. All that time produced one fish 1/1, a nice rainbow. Had him out of the water much longer than I would have liked, but have him a few minutes reviving him and he swam away, thankfully. I didn't see a single other person even battle a fish the entire time I was out there. Seemed to just be a terrible day for fishing, although a few different people I talked to said they had done well during last week. I'll try to get back out sometime this week. Still, a poor day of fishing is better than a good day of work! Tight lines everyone
