I am becoming convinced that there are no normal days on the big lake. However I was able to land a 3 pound Coho trolling through massive schools of baitfish. It looks like the alewifes survived the winter. Either that or the whole population of Lake Michigan is within 3 miles of Port Washington.

Caught the salmon on a peanut fly that I tied myself. Silver and green.

Went out last evening.  First trip of the season.  Water was cold, 51 at the surface.   Started in the shallows south of the harbor (about 30 feet of water)  Bait balls on the graph everywhere but could not find the game fish.
Moved out to 65 feet of water (still cold at 52 on the surface).  Marked bait balls regularly (not as much as in shallow) but still not marking any game fish.  Had no strikes and put everything down (coho rigs, chinook rigs, spoons, plugs) fished near the surface down to 40 feet.
As we were getting ready to pull lines we heard that the fish are further out.  About 150 feet of water as the warmer water has pushed out.  Will try again tonight and go straight out to deeper water.
Good luck with the 2018 season!  Based on all the bait fish I saw last night I think we are going to see some huge salmon this year.

First time out this year.  Started in 30 fow, wandered out as deep as 65 fow, lots more bait and hooks in shallower water.  No bumps all night - ran 9 lines. 1,1,2,3,5 colors, 2 wire dipsies and 2 riggers covering all depths. Boat that came in at dark with us had 3 kings - said they were in 70 fow.  Better days ahead

Went out on a fun run to dial in the boat, solo run.  Tried in shallow, 30-40 fow, marked a lot of bait balls and fish, no hits.  Worked my way out to 160 fow, Dead Sea on the graphs.  Worked back in and got one 5 lb king on a 2 core with orange dodger peanut fly.  I know, not an ideal time to get out, but it’s akways fun to be on the water.

I would just find some bait and see what happens. Don't know unless you try! I'm holding off till next week to go out and I'm hoping something changes and a load of fish moves into the Port area. Like others have said it's pretty spotty right now but that's fishin. My confidence is with anything orange this time of year.
