  2. Go with the 50/200 for salmon fishing. Still works OK inland. JGESox
  3. Fishing is still consistent, if not fast off Waukegan. Same area as last report, same baits. Thermocline was at 45- 50 feet. Fish were high in the water column, even caught a laker on a spoon off a downrigger set at 56 feet. Best baits are magnum spoons on copper and leadcore off planer boards. Wire dipseys took a few hits on meat rigs but only a couple of lakers on the riggers. Good mix of species, everything but brown trout.
  4. Will be attempting to fish off Waukegan for the whole Memorial weekend (weather permitting. Just got a tip that some kings have moved in to shallower water (60-90 feet). The fishing may be epic if weather holds. Will provide a recap.
  5. We did OK NE of Waukegan Sunday in 115 to 160 FOW. A coho, a king, a steelie, and two lake trout. East winds brought 3-4 footers. 55 degrees and the thermocline were at 75 feet. Early fish high in warmer water. Mag Green Dolphin took 2 on 300 copper, Black Mamba meat rig took the king on a wire dipsey (#2, 75 FOC), lakers came on riggers (Old Yeller and Evil Alewife down 95 and 83 respectively). Will be out all three days Memorial weekend, weather permitting.
  6. Will be heading back to Waukegan this Sunday to try again for salmon. Winds have been predominantly from the east since Wednesday, which will drive the salmon to deeper water. Fortunately, it looks like the wind will be light. Will report back with a details from the deep.
  7. Found some kings in 140 FOW to the NE of Waukegan. Steelies too. 4 for 5. All bites between 8:00 and 9:30. Two on wire dipsey (75 FOC, #2 setting) with a John King Black Mamba meat rig. One on 300ft copper with a mag Green Dolphin Streak, one on a 10 color core with a mag Carmel Dolphin Warrior. Lost a another steelie on one of the board rods . Then the bite quit. Back out this weekend. Looks like west winds for the rest of the week. Salmon fishing on the west side will continue to improve if this turns out to occur. I have openings for this weekend as well as Labor Day weekend. Should be prime time! $375 for up to 4 anglers. Give me a call if you want in on some big kings. 847-420-3046.
  8. Will be headed to Waukegan tomorrow to fish salmon. Weather looks like it will cooperate. Will update with pics.
  9. I have an opening this Satutday for salmon fishing off Waukegan, IL. $375 for up to four anglers. Call me to get in while the action is hot!
  10. Salmon have moved back into waters on the western side of the lake. Thermocline at 65 feet. Early kings down 30-50 feet. Best action in 115 to 150 FOW off Waukegan. Meat rigs, spoons, and dodger fly all worked. Only going to get better from now on!
  11. Reports indicate that salmon fishing has improved in deeper waters off Waukegan. I will be fishing for salmon out of Waukegan this weekend. Will post a fishing report as soon as possible.
  12. Will be out fishing this weekend with niece and nephews on Diamond Lake near Cassopolis, MI. Family vacation time!
