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).

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
