Fishing Tips for Lake Michigan

The warm weather has been doing weird things to the fishing. There are fish being caught shallow (if you want to try catching them from shore fish cast out as far as you can if you want to catch those fish from a boat fish just past where the shore anglers can cast) and they are being caught out deep (if you want to catch these fish from shore you should buy a boat if you want to catch these fish from a boat you should try trolling spoons and plugs is 110-145 feet of water). Good luck fishing!

Fishing Tips for Wakegan Harbor

The cold weather we have been experiencing lately has pushed the salmon in towards the shore. In fact a few have been caught in the harbor. I do not recommend doing all you’re fishing in the harbor yet but you will want to fish near it. Good luck fishing!
