How many of you own a Dotline net and was sad when they moved out of Kenosha? Well I was at Jalensky's one day and seen they have Dotline nets. So I asked the guy for the number which he gave me and the new name of the company is called Drifter Marine so I looked it up on the internet and seen it says Dotline nets after surfing I came across a net I like so I ordered it on a Friday night. After looking closer I realized the handle was not long enough. So I sent a E-mail saying I want to cancel my order not knowing they already shipped it so this guy named Zach Specialty gave me a call and we got to talking about how they made really long handles. So he asked me is the hole octagon shape and 1 1/8 wide I said yes it is and he said we have a 8' – 16? Push-N-Glide Pole that will fit so I ordered it and I'm so happy I did cause when I extend it with my net it is 14ft and if I extend it all the way it goes to almost 18ft just perfect for pier fishing. With shipping it came to almost 54 dollars. Here is there website www.driftermarine.com

Went out this morning 8:30-11:30am. Didn't catch anything. Tried jigging, spoons, and cranks. Saw a few fish jumping, caught a glimpse of a brown, no sign of salmon. Might wait a few weeks and try my luck again.

I'd say if you were heading up this week, you'd have a shot at some browns, especially if you can stay a couple hours after dark. All these east winds have really warmed up the water close to shore, so kings may be a long shot, although with the rain last night there may be a couple around already. I've noticed generally you start seeing a few kings in the harbor by mid to late august, and I personally have done better fishing through the night for early running kings. The weekend may be a better choice if you can wait a couple days since the winds are supposed to switch back out of the west. Hope this helps, let us know how you do!

Read down all the posts, thanks for all the great info guys. The Chicago forums haven't really been covering Kenosha lately. When do the kings usually start coming back? Would it be worth it to go up this week to try to catch a brown?

I am thinking about heading up after work this week for a few hours. I can put the GF on a white tube/slip setup, while I drag 1/2 oz Cleos/KO's across the bottom, and maybe throw a few cranks.

Think its worth a shot with the current conditions?

Thanks!

Used to live there before they did all that development on the harbor. We would use the white tubes f or jigging straight down the south wall of the harbor in july and august at nite but the big girls were during the day. Cast out a blue or green cleo as far as it would go and let it sink to the bottom and just let it crawl along the bottom. Picked up some between 15-20lbs. thats fun from shore.I was also using a 12ft rod so I could get the spoon way out there.

Alex303 here let me help you out this is what I have been nailing the fish on just by casting out and letting it sink to the bottom. Once it hit the bottom I give it a couple of pops let it sink and repeat the process. I even had one come straight up as I was reeling it up but did not hit it. They usually either hit it on the drop or a slow reel you need to watch your line cause they really don't slam it like if you were casting a spoon. Once you get the feel for this it's almost like jigging for perch. Ok the slip bobber method you use the smaller crappie tube jigs white or pearl white is what I use. Thrill makes slip bobbers with different sizes I suggest you get one that you would use for bluegill less resistant they feel the better. Ok I hope you know how to put on a slip bobber? Ok I use Fireline crystal 14lb which has a 8lb diameter once I have my slip bobber on I tie on a small double swivel then my main line is 8lb fluorocarbon with a 3ft leader to my tube jig and I put a medium size split shot above my double swivel so my slip bobber doesn't get caught. The key to this kind of fishing is finding the fish at the right depth once you do that twitch your bobber a few times let it sit and repeat the process. But lately I have been getting a lot more fish by jigging the tubes. You can buy the tubes either at Harborside bait on 7th st or jalensky's on hwy 31 good luck will be out either late wedensday but most definetly thursday
