Got out for a few hours this am before the wind really picked up. Pretty wavy in a 17' boat. managed 2 small coho and lost a nice fish just outside north gap. With wind we did not venture to far. 1st coho on white/chrome spoon at 40' on dipsey back 27 loc. 2nd coho was on same rig in 45'. Lost fish was on 3 color with orange spoon. Cohos were small, but will be tasty.

Pretty much exactly what Jason said...a few fish here and there. Nothing crazy but enough to keep you somewhat busy with a fish every 30-45min. Best water for us this weekend was 70-120 with a good mix of rainbows, Kings, a couple cohos and the occasional laker. Most kings came on dipseys out 50-70 with brads cut plugs. Bows were all over the board coming on 2-6 color lead ores as well as riggers. Cohos seemed to pick on my high rigger every trip. Mostly worked the top 50ft of the water column. The Kings were all pretty nice though ranging from 10-16 lbs.

I did post its right under yours Gus. Not much to post kinda wandering around and getting a few here and there. Been from 30-100. Some fish every trip, but nothing crazy. Best stuff is on 3 and 5 color with any orange spoon you can find. Some coho, biting coho rigs but nothing fast. Only 4-6 fish a trip. Some nice kings tho. Just gotta go and fish, that's the only way to figure it out. Good luck and see you on the water!

I have been out the past two days out of south shore in the afternoon and early evening. There are a lot of small coho, not keeper size. I caught one nice sized one thursday. Caught them in droves. Could not keep them off black and silver flicker shad. Had only one hit on a dodger and peanut fly, green and yellow, on dipsey. I really doubt the main schools of coho are around. All caught in 20FOW and less. I did keep 3 coho thursday (the big one and two others that were not going to live). The stomachs had insects and each had an alewive.

Did motor out at the end tonight to 50-60fow and landed a monster steelhead on 2 color with a 2 oz weight (left my 7 color in the car) on a dw green dolphin.

Not much to report as of lately as we are patiently waiting for some warmer weather and water. Winds have again kept the water cold this spring. We have been taking mostly kings for our last 4 trips, but it's a relative term. Trips are in the 5 fish range. All fish coming on spoons in under 50fow. Lead cores have been best in 5 color. We need a warm up pretty bad as far as the water goes if we hope to get some coho here. Mid lAke temps are still in the upper 30s. Good luck and see you on the water.

Toyman, we launched out of SS in an effort to reduce the beating my trailer takes running downtown. Saturday we again made the same trip to SS and started at the can trolling south anywhere from 20 to 50fow. We took two hos total over 6 hrs of washing nine lures. One came on a shallow diving crank behind a board the other on my probe rigger. Sadly both fish were "toy" sized.

Fished this morning from 430 til 11. Started out by the wreck looking for kings to no avail. Moved to skinny water and trolled from 25 to 50 fow up and down shore from Bradford to towers. Lost a nice laker at boat side. Had two other drive bys and a 10 lb bow. Pretty different than the past two times I was out, as there were no other boats and I smacked the fish. Tried many options with nothing panning out. A bit chillier than I was dressed for, but no bugs was nice. Where are the ho's?

Fished last night in 30-50. As we were setting our primarily coho targeted spread in 30 we popped one on the 1 color. Went the rest of the night dragging around 1.9-2.1 finding inactive fish down 15 in 30 fow and more inactive fish down 45 in 50 fow. Ended the night with one.

No coho really to be had here in Milwaukee. Plenty to the south. Trout and a few kings on the menu here in Milwaukee, but no real concentration of them. Just have to go out and fish to figure it out for yourself. All I can add is that it's happening on spoons. You should probably not be running cohos rigs right now cause there are none here yet really. Fish for what's available. Good luck and see you on the water!

Has anyone been out? Thinking about going in the am. Wondering if coho still exist, or just browns and lakers. C'mon someone post.
