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).

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
