Default TCG fishiní thread V. 2019

Itís looking like we have another 2-3 weeks of ice left here in Illinois. Im starting to think about open water fishing again.

I want to focus on catching other species than largemouth this year. Iíll definitely be hitting local ponds for largies purely for convenience.

My 2019 fishing bucket list:
-steelhead from shore on Lake Michigan
-land my first musky
-fish some local bodies of water I havenít taken much advantage of. Namely the Chicago and DesPlaines Rivers

Got into a school of steelhead out at Waukegan harbor a couple years back. Was a ton of fun. We each got 3-4 fish in about an hour of fishing.

I want to get a king from shore, but I think I'm going to have to go to Kenosha to do it...seems like kings are few and far between south of the boarder from shore...

Picked up a 10’ shimano convergence rod and a pile of spoons. Ready for some attempting to catch steelhead and coho. Using my other rod for a sliding sinker rig to bottom fish.

I’ll be doing a lot more fishing this year. Putting racing on the back burner. My
Pops wants to hit Green Bay and Hayward for muskie and walleye and the big waters for Kings. We went to the northern Illinois boat show last weekend and he walked out owning a 2019 Lund 1875 crossover. So now I’m gonna buy a 2019 adventure 1675ss after my wedding in April. I Stocked up on a bunch of Muskie gear over winter and plan to hit it hard along with walleye and northern. I should be on the chain pretty often this year if anyone ever wants to tag along.

1st outing on open water this year and knocked out my 1st bucket list fish. I went to Burnham harbor after work and caught a steelhead on spoon. Beyond pumped when I got it in the net. Then I ate it.
