Went out Saturday to Waukegan, but it was a bust. Wind was heavy off the lake, and no one was catching anything. Usually you see some guys carrying stuff out, but not even that.

We're going back Saturday again, hoping to be able to fish off our normal pier. Last week the waves were so bad, our normal pier had waves crashing over the top. So we went to our backup spot on the channel into the harbor.

Found a new Musky bait shop off 173 in Antioch by the Channel lake launch called Musky Tales. It's only open on weekeds and is attached to a bar. Not a ton of baits in there but had some custom lures. Stopped in to see what they had for leaders didn't have the ones I liked so I bought this badboy!

Skunked in Waukegan yesterday too. Our normal pier was pretty murky, moved into the channel and no fish to be heard of. Need to get out and do some bass fishing soon

Buy a WI license and go to Kenosha Harbor... WI has the best fishing.



I plan on going to go down Kenosha Harbor this week sometime once we get some rain.

That's what I've always heard. I've gone out on charter boats for salmon twice from Kenosha, and both times got our limits, including a 19 pound king. Never fished from the harbor though. Might have to get a 24 hr license and check it out.

The Harbor is good fishing though sometimes you gotta fight for a spot with the polish guys depending on the day. Just to the north of the harbor maybe a mile up is Pikes creek that connects to the Lake , they run up in there when the water is higher and they come close to shore near there to be able to cast from shore/beach and get them. I know 2 of the best charter captain's out of Kenosha, they usually win all the tournaments when they fish together and limit out in 2hrs sometimes.

You also have Racine Harbor and the famous Root River and Milwaukee harbor is also really good just more of a drive.

A regular IL licence is $31.50 with no stamp for me as a non resident. I used to fish out of Waukegan & Winthrop harbor a good amount for Jumbo Perch and Salmon it's been at least 6-7years since I've been out there.

Spring Creek Reservoir, and the lake that goes under Medinah road into the country club. If you hop a fence at the back of the reservoir he's had really good luck with big bass, but half the time comes out with poison ivy rashes

Bottom of the spillway is clean, and they've got decent fish down there. I've been there a couple of times, and have had decent luck

Wish I was still a Lake County resident, then Indpendence Grove is free to get into. Otherwise it's $10 on weekends. Their fishing/boating regulations kind of suck. Wanted to bring in my own kayak, but they only allow you to rent. It's $10 for the first hour, and $5 for each additional hour.

There are big fish, but in my experience, they're hard to catch because it's pretty over fished, even though it's catch and release.

Could be worth a shot to try something different and rent a boat. Bet there's some biggins in that deep spot.

Last time I fished there was a few years ago. I was bass fishing with plastics from shore and had an easy 40"+ Muskie follow to about 5' from shore, before veering off. The water is super clear, so I watched it for quite a while, it was intense...

I'm down to hit it up- it's about 45 minutes from me tho so I'd have to make it out on the weekend to make it worth it IMO
