Glade to see this post, but not happy with what may be a difficult future for us small boat week-end guys. I attended a salmon fishing seminar over the weekend in Kenosha and a major topic over the two days was how fishing in general, and especially spring Coho fishing, has moved way off shore. What I took away from the weekend was that instead of catching Coho in 30 feet of water this spring, expect to travel to 300 feet of water due to the lack of alewives and therefore Coho changing their diet to fresh water shrimp which typically are out very deep, very deep at least for guys like me. So like last year, the “ Coho forecast” was that there will be very few Coho in close, but the fishing will be tremendous for those who are willing and able to travel the 10, 12 or more miles east to get to them. If this is true, I will surely miss those Saturday mornings fishing close enough to shore to hear people talking while catching a limit of Coho in a few hours. Rats! The obvious solution, a major investment in a bigger and newer boat. BTW, I fish out of Racine/Kenosha.
