Thumbs up Look what happened on Lake Michigan today

This is just part of what we caught today. Coho, Steelhead, Lake trout and King Salmon. There were 11 of us, 2 boats. We aought 49 fish!! The largest was a 14.5 lbs. King Salmon that my dad caught. We got a little wet but not till we got back to the dock. It was a great day!

Payton, it looks like the marina just inside the pier heads in Michigan City---am I right? I think I recognize the docks. Nice catch by the way.

I think you are right KAAMA it looks like the 600 docks. Which charter did you take? I know Corkindill goes out of Mich City and catches fish like that on a regular basis.

KAAMA, yep. You're right

Wette vette, I think it was the 700s. I may be wrong on that. We were right beside Corkendill. We went with Mike Hample and Scott something.

Yep, the little guys had fun. The youngest, the one in the yellow hat, said he boxed 6. They all fish a whole lot more than I do. At times during the day, it didn't seem like we were fishing. We were catching!
At least 4 times we had fish on 2 lines at once. One time we had three lines comeing in at one time.
The last ones of the day bought in, Dad and I were doing the honors. When my fish got close enough to see I thought I had crossed Dad's line. I saw 2 fish. He said his was way out yet. I had big Lake Trout and a Coho on the same line. The lures were about 3' apart. The Lake Trout got free just 2 feet before he was in the net. I still boxed a nice Coho out of the deal.
