I hit the Gov't pier over in Waukegan but got there a little too late (7 am) because I kept hitting snooze on the alarm clock thinking it was a work day. I got a hit on the harbor side on a holographic spoon but didn't set the hook in time. I got a big hit on a Model "A" deep diver crankbait. I horsed in a big male King, but he made a real good run going to the edge of the rocks and I thought I was gonna run out of line. When I finally got him to shore, I tried to tail him because I forgot the net in the car and gave him enough slack to get loose. :evil: I did catch a couple of nice brown trout (I think - don't know my trout too well other than rainbow) on floating salmon eggs using a Carolina rig type of setup an casting as far as i could from the end of the pier. I used two large sinkers and let the eggs float out a bit. I got a nice perch too using a minnow and jig when the salmon stopped hitting. I'm still pissed on missing out on like 15 lbs of salmon steaks, but was a nice day overall. If anyone's interested, I will be heading out there on Friday night and fishing 'til morning because it is 24 hour fishing like it should be everywhere in the area.
