Water surface buoys temps in close once again dropped 10 degrees last 24 hours at Winthrop harbor & Waukegan buoys to Low 50's !!! Anybody having success with predawn kings or cohos on the IL. or Kenosha Hills ? Any baitfish in there ? The silence is deafening !
Water temp off Winthrop Harbor Buoy dropped from 65 deg. to 50 degrees over nite ! Are there any alewives in close also ?
Not a good day to go swimming

Fished out of Northpoint yesterday 5 am to 11 am. Fishing was very slow only 6 coho for 6 hours ! Started out in 25' of water and ended up in 100 ' very little if any bait fish around. Best action was in about 50' of water in and around temp breaks 49 deg. into 53 deg. Water was almost dead calm. Fish caught had no alewives in stomachs . Talked to others at dock including charter captains , also said fishing was very slow . Heard from some that fished in front of Waukegan in shallow, that fishing was great at sunrise but tapered off when the armada spooked the fish ! All our fish caught on small dodgers & peanut flys on boards and dipseys . Downriggers quiet .
Anyone know if Northpoint is open to get boat out? Thx.

I fished from 1:30-4:45pm from the marina in 10.5 FOW and nothing.
Lots of people out and tons of tip ups and mostly small pikes caught not many.
Fishing was slow. I did not make many fish and was set up on the 2nd pier slot out onto the water.
Anyone else having luck?
