Thanks for the response. I'd like to tangle with some Kings and Brown Trout. Although it sounds like the Coho are great to eat and are starting to show up. I hear that these fish can be caught close to shore.
Bought a couple "Automatic Fisherman" to use while ice fishing the harbors, but never made it up there.
Do you ever take your boat out on Lake Michigan and fish for Trout or Salmon?
I check out Eric Hattaja's site (www.wibigfish.com) all the time and I'm amazed at the quality fish they catch. I want to come up and try it some time, using my boat. Sounds like certain times of the year the "near-shore" and harbor bite can be good. A lot of fish caught vertical jigging Gulp minnows and jerk shads. Or trollin planer boards using crankbaits and spoons / flies.
I've got a 17' Lund, so I don't want to venture out too far, unless it's relatively calm.
Just curious to see how much of this type fishing you do?
