I'm new to Lake Michigan fishing, and have plenty of questions. I plan to fish from shore by the harbor, and would really appreciate some very basic advice on how to hook some of those big trout and salmon.
What kind of spoons are recommended for this time of year? Should they be retrieved immediately, or let them sink first? I've tried casting some spoons and a rapalla countdown the last couple of mornings with no strikes.
I'm thinking I might want to try using spawn sacks next. How do I rig them, and how do I fish them? I've watched You Tubes of how to tie them, but didn't really get how to fish them in a lake.
Also, any advice on jigging with tubes? Is this a good technique for fishing off the wall?
