Only one way to find out cast glow spoons from. Midnight to 7 am

Fished for about 90 minutes on the South pier. No bites, but someone caught a nice smallmouth(~18") on the south side. Another fish towards dusk, couldn't see what it was. They let it go. On the northside pier, one woman hooked into a big king that must have spit the hook. Another guy had one break off - not sure what that was. Lots of kings jumping out of the water, already darkening up. One guy said that the group on the end of the south pier caught 7 salmon the other night and a guy coming in on a boat fishing by the mouth said he caught 2. It looked like pretty much everyone was casting spoons.

Fished again this morning for about 90 minutes. My daughter briefly hooked a northern but it got off. I had one hit, casting various spoons. I did see a big king jump completely out of the water about 20 feet away, already starting to turn black. Maybe they'll be coming in soon with the slight cool down forecasted for the next several days.

Trolled off Two Rivers near piers, on 5/4 two to six. Didnt get anything, Seen one pier angler catch two off the pier. hour before dark Water cold, dirty. no coho's yet. Further South, Port Washington. Sheboygan,
Hello fellow pier anglers...I am wondering how many of you have had success fishing Coho this time of year and if it's worth my time to drive over and try?
Also a couple questions regarding conditions... Like with the Kings in late summer is there a specific wind that helps bring these Coho's in close to the piers? (i.e. Warmer river water dumping into the lake, or west winds pushing out cold water).
I've done as much research on-line as I can but nothing helps in regard to what water (warmer or colder) these Coho are seeking.
I would appreciate any helpful input. You can always PM me if you prefer.
