1st off welcome aboard.

Secondly I think your best bet and easiest for you would be Boyscout landing area. Most people head down river and you will see them or where they have been. Dont think this is the only spot to fish though. If the Pout are still in the area they will be on the channel edges. I like about 12-14' of water. You will get both eyes and Pout then.

Go through Gary and Boyscout is as you get out of Gary and straight down the hill. DONT DRIVE OUT! Its a very easy walk with some cleats for traction. Good Luck!

You should plan on keeping some of the Pout. Skin them like a Bullhead, take the meat off both the ribs, and the tail. Coat them with mustard (plain, ordinary mustard)then roll them in breading,fry in hot oil/grease like a Walleye. You will never throw one back after eating them cooked in this manner. Throw a little Real Lemon on them with salt before eating, they are very good. This is a good recipe for Walleye and Northerns also, try it! ooo.gif
