I went today and got skunked. The water looked a little cloudy. The only entertainment I had was gut hooking a small trout and watchin the seagulls fight over it.

I did not see anyone catching anything. I talked to a guy fishing for sheephead and he said that they were catching perch on shadraps a couple of weeks ago.

The guy at the bait shop said that a couple of guys got swept off the pier on Monday and the cops rescued them. The bait shop guy said that one of them came in after that to buy a grappling hook to get his bike back.

I finally got lucky this AM on the shoe. I fished from 6:30 to 10. I was catching a few small ones and then I moved 40 feet to the left & got some good sized perch. I had better luck with just a # 8 gold hook and a real small split shot. I was using a home made crappie rig, but went to the light rig. I got 2 dozen fat heads and ran out of bait. Always a good reason to quit fishing.

I went out this morning and I got a couple of small perch. I got to Montrose horseshoe at 6:30AM. They had the road closed down at the Park bait shop down to the jetty from 6AM to noon for filming Chicago PD. Therefore I had to walk from the bait shop to the shoe. I got 2 small perch. At 8AM it started raining heavily with lightning. I left at this point. At least I got 2 perch this summer.

I fished Montrose horseshoe Monday from 6AM to 10:30AM. I used minnows and caught one drum and a bunch of gobies, but no perch. When I got there at 6 most of the fisherman were leaving. A few aught some perch. One guy got 6 and another 3. On the plus side, I drove from Downers Grove to the lake in 35 minutes which is a miracle. I tried by the jetty and by the mouth of the harbor, but no luck. 

The shoe is high enough so that you do not get wet. The water was pretty calm. The wind just started blowing from the west on Monday, so maybe it will pick up. I am going to try it again on Thursday. When I left the shoe, there was only 1 guy fishing on the whole pier.

I am going to sturgeon Bay in 3 weeks. I know I can get them there. I am staying in a place with a pretty long dock. 

The last couple of years I have been catching them off the horseshoe. I will check it out this week. I do not want to go out there if the water is too high.
