  2. Shot this from North Point ,Winthrop Harbor. its 11 mins long and very interesting how Lake Michigan can turn on you quick. 20 minutes after the fish was caught and all poles in, we fought 5-7 foot waves head on for three miles to the marina. First time in the 17.5 ft Osprey Tuffy and it handled it like a pro. The 150 merc efi had no problem either.Set the rpm's at 2200 and left it with no throttling involed. http://www.rockfish44lb.com/Fish/video/5-11-07%20---%20%20%20KING.WMV

Hot ticket for me was a OO red /green and gold fly set with a 5/8oz weight,back 40 feet.Also a white plastic/with a LBB fly set on rigger at 60 feet which took 4 cohos. Hot spoon was a copper stinger monkey puke and a green stinger monkey puke and a Hey Baby Rockfish

  15. Hi folks, As I read this more and I was interested in the ways you fisherman/women fished.Just found this site and was really impressed with it. I started fishing the south-west end of Lake Michigan last year and just want to learn as much as possible. Now I have been going out of 95th street/stateline for the last few weeks and have produced fish everytime so I must be doing something right. Wed I took my dad out and he was a kid in a candy store. We went 8-11 and the biggest fish was a 18lb Brown trout. Never seen a 75 year old man so happy. He is alos a video I made of the last couple trips until the camera took a dip(rut roe) Enjoy Rockfish http://www.rockfish44lb.com/Jason/CLF/Coho.WMV
