I have called the marina office and they told me you can fish there entire shoreline even in the harbor, just not from the boat docks, u have to fish from the rocks off the board walk or the fishing pier
Pikeman.. I have been fishing this harbor and Waukegan harbor every no and then strictly for bass whenever I'm in the area. I usually use a heavier football head with some kind of creature bait. I had a bass on all the way out at the end of the fishing pier on the rocks but didn't land it. Saw 2 LM sunning near the beginning of the pier as well. Caught a nice 3-4# SM bass at Waukegan harbor w a power worm and tungsten football head and I have seen several very very large SM there. I think minnows would work but I don't fish live bait and I don't think the bass congregate in any certain area so I am always trying to cover water from shore in order to find them. Hope that gives u some help. I like Waukegan harbor over Winthrop because the water clarity is a lot better and there's so nice rock ledges and whatnot -Luke
Fishing in the harbor is illegal and I have been caught and ticket so I know for certain
any tips for catching bass in the marina, should I get minnows, or I was thinking about using gobies, tell me your thoughts. Are their any catfish?
