I got invited by a friend to go to St. Joe today to go fishing for trout/salmon.

Prior to today, I have never caught a Lake Michigan trout/Salmon.

On our way out a guy told us he limited out, south of the channel and in shallow, so we took his advice and headed that way. We were fishing in 20-23 FOW when we landed our first 3 (and only) fish. We had a couple more hits, but didn't land any more.

Those 3 consisted of 2 cohos and a steelhead, caught on a orange jointed rapala, a red thin fish, and a firetiger husky jerk. My two friends caught the cohos.

After we got to the launch a guy told us we should have headed 4 miles north, everyone limited out there.....oh well, just my luck. :D

Although this "report" isn't as good as some.....catching my very first steelhead ever made it a success to me.
