I believe the season begins on April 1st at East Chicago.
1. How do you locate early season coho?
2. How long will the coho be around? Water temp when they leave?
3. After the coho leave, are there lake trout or steelhead around?
4. Do the perch begin as soon as the coho leave? Are they easy to find?
5. Is there a point where it's not worth fishing the Indiana shore? How far do you have to run for fish?

Lots of questions, your expert advice is appreciated!

In case you are wondering, I sold the Grady. Oh well, everybody makes mistakes....

1. Cast or troll
2. Til they leave, then some years they come back. Depends
3. Yes
4. They’re here before the coho show, while they’re here, and after they leave. But, they can turn off or scatter at any time.
5. I’ve caught trout or salmon fishing from shore in Indiana all 12 month’s of the year.

Spring coho with a boat is as easy as it gets. Look around the ship canal or the inland wall if you’re fishing out of EC. The run to Gary Light is usually worth it. If its windy find protected areas. If it’s been windy and the lake is churned up look for cleaner water. If you find mudlines or temperature changes fish them hard. Early in the season casting with jigs and squid or bobber or bottom fishing is going to be more productive than trolling. I troll mostly cranks j-9 or j-11 raps or orange thinfish until the water is in the 40’s then I’ll use more dodgers. Keep everything close to the surface.
