Not many guys getting out. Some guys are getting Coho and Lakers off of PP. Surprisingly shallow. Must be hitting all the smelt that are still in.

I wish I had today off though.

Now watch opener will be 50 and raining with 30 mph winds from the N/E.

You guys should load up the boat and come this way. In lake michigan right on the border of IL and WI we are getting limits of cohos in no time at all. on sat we got 40 fish in an hour and a half. The limit for everyone on board including the captain and myself. These fish are also much bigger than they are in Superior with the biggest right now being about 6# and averaging between 3 and 4. Just thought I would give you guys the heads up if any of you can or want to make it down.

not a whole lot of smog where we fish it is a ways from the city. but I did get out casting on the breakwall myself the other day for a couple hours and got 18 cohos up to 6 pounds something that I know for a fact you aren't going to do on your big lake. We have also been limiting out for several weeks now. We left the dock at 5:10 this morning and were back at the dock by 6:00 with 33 nice silver buggers. They are still there to be had so you guys can keep your lakers I like my way better.

I used to fish out of Waukegan every weekend when I lived down there The coho's are a lot bigger down there than the ones up here. As I remember, May was the hottest month down there trolling out in front of the Com-Ed plant with alot of cohos and BIG browns.

I used to fish the same area as JarJar when I was stationed at Great Lakes. They might be bigger, but the water is alot cleaner and fish in Superior taste different(better).

      Sorry for the late response.  I was on the ice Friday-Monday fishing with our pro staff group.  We fished each morning for tuilibees and fished a few lakes and wow can you see a difference between lakes!  5 miles away and you go from average size of 19" to 13".  My buddy Scott who produced the video and the skinny guy is using I think a Wicked 13 Long stem reel which a spring broke in the bail this weekend.  I am using either a 13 FreeFall or a 13 Black Betty 6061 inline reel.  I like the in line reels better then the spinning reels and I wont be switching back for my ice fishing gear.  When its warmer out I like the FreeFall because I can drop the line with just one hand and not have to worry about hitting the button to drop it and then reel in some to get it to lock into place.  Scott I think is using a 32" St Croix rod, he switches between a light and a medium rod depending on his mood lol and I'm using a Yogi Custom Rod 32" Medium Light (Blue) and my other rod is a 32" medium rod (Black) I switch between them so its hard to keep them straight.  If your looking for a good rod he does 100% custom rods so you pick action tip eyelets colors string handles its pretty awesome and if your looking at the top end ones you get off the shelf you are paying about the same for a custom rod from him.     Fish were very hit and miss this weekend.  We caught a few in a few different holes but nothing great but yesterday we tried a new hole and instantly started getting them on top of the ice.  Will be trying that spot this weekend if I can get out on the ice.  I hate fishing solo just in case something happens out there and my fishing partner is heading Devils Lake for a week.  We had a ton of guys come by and see what we were doing that were "Seasoned Tuilibee Fisherman" that were using the 3" daredevil and told us what we were using wasn't going to be working get frustrated and leave because we were putting fish topside and they were only getting sniffers.  Our rig that has worked great for us is a 1/8 oz Kastmaster (Gold, Silver, or Rainbow Trout) with about 14-16" of line drop to a 4 or 5 mm tungstun jig (White, Pink, or Silver) loaded with wax worms.

      Go to Fleet or the Cabala's and look at all their small tackle, hunting or shooting cases.
