Had a great time fishing Coho out of conveniently located Michigan City Tuesday.  What else can be had this time of year over the course of the next couple weeks?  

I do not run down riggers so I am limited to trolling cranks, jigging, deep divers ect.  (no smallmouth varmints please)

Lakers?  Kings?  Any help getting started is greatly appreciated.

Coho is just starting for trolling and should get stronger.  The fish will move north when it warms to St Joe to Holland and offshore.   You could probably do well dragging bottom for lake trout when the coho leave Michigan City.   You can hit some kings in the spring for a couple weeks.  Usually the first 2 weeks of May is best but I've never fished MC then.  There was awesome king fishing off St Joe last year for about 2 weeks in May.   In years past when king numbers were much larger than today, it was very consistent.  Spring king fishing has been more sporadic in recent years since there are a lot less kings out there now.  Mega Byte shared a good video on another thread for browns, these tactics could work on browns at MC, they are around in spring.
