Although I didn't catch any fish, day 4 of my 5 in 5 was the most exciting so far. My dad and I arrived at the South Rocks today around 6:30, set up on the harbor side and fished till 10. The temps were in the forties (everyday of my 5 in 5 so far has had beautiful weather).



My father caught one male steelhead (seen below). Both him and I were using pink steelhead jigs with crawlers under a float.



I had a big fish on that ran like crazy for two minutes or so before he got loose. The guys on both sides of us did well using shrimp. I helped one of the gentlemen net this beauty!



Although I didn't catch anything, I still had one hell of a time attempting to bring in the fish I had on my line. Oh, well.

Steelhead - 1 (caught by my father)

Me and my buddy Rudy (aka twoglasseyes, brand new to WCF!) are going to Beck for the last outing of my 5 in 5. I don't know if it will be as exciting as today but it should be a blast!

P.S. I called this 5 in 5 although I technically fished Lake Michigan twice. 4 in 5 just doesn't sound good 8).

Thanks for the report Sean. There's something about fighting a salmon or trout that makes LM so exciting to fish at times. Good luck tomorrow at Beck. :D
