After 4 hours of casting, my arm was nearly dead and only had two chunky drum to show for it. About 10 am and on my last weary cast I was awakened out of my daydream by a slam bang attack on my Kastmaster. Lucky I had an experienced netter who helped bring this torpedo in. Thanks to him or it might not have turned out so well! Fish are here but it's not going crazy. Right time and right place it could be your day! Go and Get 'em! Waukegan SR.

Thanks! Going to try Wisconsin this week, though numbers of salmon seem to be down everywhere.

Thanks, Kastmaster worked slow. Watch out there's a rock about 10 yards off the shore that eats up lures.

Yes sir, I found the rock a few times 1 day last week and it finally got me for 1. No fish not even a bump was seen on that day but sometime that's how it goes.

Went out for my first time chasing King's and was not disappointed. Went up to Kenosha Friday night around 11:30pm. We went to a beach at Pennoyer Park. On my fifth or sixth cast, I had one hit, but no hookup, then about ten minutes after that I had my first King hooked and the fight was on. Got it to shore and as soon as it was visible it came off. No one on that beach was catching them, so we figured that would be all the excitement we'd have but decided to stay a little while longer. About 1:30am as I began my retrieve, while zoning out starring at the stars in the sky, just amazed at how perfect the night was, as the water was rolling onto the shore, the full moon was bright and the sky was full of stars, BAM! Another hookup and fight! Got this one netted for my first King!

100% lol. I'm bass/panfish guy, so catching something this size and how hard they fight, it was a hell of a rush! Feeling that tug while the drag screams is something I think I am now hooked on!

Nice Catch! I love how big they are this year. It's so funny that you cast for hours...your mind starts to wander and then the strike occurs and muscle memory kicks in and you react! Nice to hear there's some Kenosha action, too.

I was throwing a Moonshine Mainliner Glow Spoon, in the Mongolian Beef pattern...

https://www.cabelas.com/product/MOONSHINE-MAINLINER-SPOON/3138341.uts?slotId=7

I really think the ticket was how far I was able to cast my spoon, because the guys on either side of me were throwing about the same thing. The guy on my left was literally throwing the same exact spoon, as he's the one who told me to buy it, lol. But we think I was getting my spoon just a bit further out, and it would make sense as I am the only one who even had a nibble, let alone two hook ups.

It may seem silly to some to get your waders on just to walk ten feet out into the lake, but that extra ten feet can possibly put your bait right where it needs to be.

Take all of that with a grain of salt, this was my first time going after salmon, lol. Just my thoughts on the matter.

So true. I was zoned out and muscle memory took over or I doubt I'd have hooked that guy, lol.

That's why it pays to move around too...i caught my limit of coho lakeside along the pier one time because I found a small school of Coho slamming bait in a very small area.
