You can park at Mckinley Marina Boat Ramp (thats what its called if you want to put it in maps for direction) and fish all along the jettys, theres a path to walk down so no rock climbing.

This video is from Sunday Evening.  We were out for about five hours (from 2:30 until about 7:30) and fished with skein.  We saw one other person catch a King (also using skein).  We saw a few fish in the harbor, but between the three of us, we only caught one.  We missed one other bite (it wasn't on the hook, but the bobber went way down and we didn't hook up).

JH, I stopped by the harbor under Hoan Bridge last night fished 5pm to 6pm. Probably a dozen other anglers in sight, including me, didnt see any action. 


Water was very dirty and rough as winds blew to the west.

How's the water clarity in the harbor?

Thanks for the link to that. That sounds like what I'm looking for. I'll have to start saving refundable glass soda bottles, start a newspaper collection, sell rags, drive to Michigan to redeem the bottles, well, on second thought that might be more expensive than... oh forget all that. Hope I'm not showing my advanced age with these money-making deals. Thanks again.

Fish hawk does offer a simplistic ‘cheap’ version that may offer a solution for your thermocline searches. Check out https://fishhawkelectronics.com/fish-hawk-td/fish-hawk-td/

While it’s still a bit speedy this a heck of a lot more affordable for inland applications. If this however is outside your budget a pair of swim trunks and a thermometer may be your best approach. :-)

Thank you for that Aluma. I was wondering if there was something for inland lakes to say, find the water temps maybe 30 feet down. Kind of like trying to find the thermocline. Something that you could lower down "X amount" of feet and then read the temperature on a gauge in the boat. I guess that's basically what you're referring to with the Fish Hawk but that sounds like it might be kind of expensive. I'm cheap.

The fish hawk speed and temp probes. there are some other brands also. Besides the wheel that gives you speed it also has a temp sensor.  It hooks on before the downrigger weight. fish hawk also make a temp sensor That you either hook on to the downrigger cable or let it slide down the dipsy diver wire. You then have to reel up either to get the temp readings. It uses a water pressure gauge and temp sensor to show temps at Every 5 foot down of depth.

Just a question. How do you get the water temperature 90-100 feet down? is there some new gadget out there? Thank you.
