Fished the harbor for the first time with my boat (bass boat) this morning with hopes to get out past the break wall. Only managed 1 northern. The lake was to rough for the bass boat. Is there a weather site that tells you the wind/wave height? Thanks. Didn't see any fish caught from 6-9am.

@ Alwaysfishing

The males "may" jump to loosen the secret sauce as well.

Now how the males & females look.

Males usually have a kyped lower jaw, it is dis formed to look hooked up. Females are usually plump with spawn and with little or no kype

As far as the kings go, thats what they do, come and go before the actual spawn they make "mock" runs in and out of the harbor. Usually at night. They come in at sun down, sometimes, and leave around sun up for deeper water. Overcast days keep them around longer.

Catching them with lures is a case of "Luck". What I mean is they have a "personal space", outside of it and they won't touch your lure. Inside of their "Personal Space" they just snap and crush the lure out of anger. Get lucky enough to get your lure in their "personal space" while they are roaming the harbor and its game on.

That is why "Glow Spoons" are so effective, they increase that personal space distance that causes them to snap on your lure.

It's kinda like a fly buzzing around you, once it gets in your face you swat at it but if its farther away you just look at it.

Off work yesterday and launched in Kenosha at 6pm, off at 8pm.

Marked fish from 15ft down to 20 all through the harbor on the way out. Trolled in 30 fow on the other side of the break wall, 2ish mph, 2 lines 100 back, using Berkley #7 flicker shads recommended by Jalensky's. One blue top with silver bottom, and one lime green top with white bottom.

Both lures got hit a couple of times but no hook set. Finally got one on the green and white. This was officially our first salmon, and first fish caught out of Lake MI. Pretty sure this is a Chinook. Beautiful fish, and a hell of a fight. Me and the boy tag teamed the reel to bring it in. Little buddy is hooked, loved it.

Tight Lines.

If you read all the posts from last year, nobody seems to ever catch fish in this harbor. Dead sea.

May I ask a question??? Okay thank you! If the Browns are jumping to loosen their roe...why are the males jumping also?

Yes if you know what you are looking at you can tell the difference between a male brown and a female brown. Especially at this point of the season.
