66° - 70° F
Went out off naval Base this morning. Was like glass out there. Started at about 545 am and trolled til 8 am. 0 bites. Was pulling a dipsy with white flasher and green fly, agent orange glow spoon on a dipsy, and a long line with 2oz weight and glow wonder bread spoon.
Started in 20ft and headed out, I marked some around 30ft but no luck. Went out to 40ft then back into the harbor around 16ft and marked crap ton but nothing would even bite. Made about 3 passes in and out. I don't know if it's no sun or wrong colors but I gave er a whirl.
Still was a beautiful morning to be out and perfect jeans and sweatshirt type weather. Someone may have luck chucking spoons in the inner harbor cuz I marked a ton.
Good luck tight lines

Anyone else have a kayak that wants to tag along with me? Trying to not go alone to harbor.
Who's sponsoring the derby and where is it being held - government pier or north pier? LZ
I will be there, this Saturday is the salmon fishing derby.
I went last week and saw a guy catch a 22lb king and on Sat two other guys caught a king each and some other guy showed me a pic of a Steelhead he caught on sunday.
The kings were caught using chrome/blue clio and chrome/blue kastmaster. The Steelhead was caught on a Rappala Crankbait.
Can't wait to catch mine lol.
Good luck all.
Might be going this weekend and looking for a permanent fishing partner. Shoot me a text 8156700454
If any one is going tomorrow or during the week and has space let me know if you'd have room for someone willing to chip in for gas and experience with most everything for salmon fishing.
love getting out as much as I can, which is hard when you are still waiting to buy a boat.
Looking to see if anyone has any salmon reports for Waukegan. Was out Monday in 60/80' w/ no luck???
