I went up to Waukegan this morning and fished the south rocks. I didn't get there until about 8:45 and fished until 10:30. When I got there I saw guys leaving with one or two fish each. There were a lot of fish jumping and I saw a lot of fish swimming too. I started out casting a 3/4 oz Rattle Trap, looking for some Kings. They weren't interested in that, so I switched to a 3/4 oz Cleo and had one strike that almost pulled my rod out of my hand. I was using Power Pro, so there was no stretch to absorb the shock. I tried to set the hook, but missed that one. After awhile, I put on a smaller Krocodile and managed to catch a nice Coho about 24" long. Sorry no pictures because in all of the excitement I forgot to take one. The guy next to me was nice enough to net it for me, so I gave him the fish. I didn't see any other fish caught while I was there from shore, just some on the Charter boats that were fishing the area.

Nice, Doc.

Glad to see someone else is having some luck with the Salmon. I've been down at Dusable/Monroe harbor twice this week around 6pm for 1-2hrs and have not had a hit this week. Other guys have caught a few here and there, but personally I have been doing pretty badly.

They have definitely been hit and miss. I was just lucky today.

I'm almost embaressed to say it, but my back was stiff for a couple of days after that big king made a good run :mrgreen: . A crappy tension building week at work didn't help either.
