I have never fished for the spring coho's and would really like to check it out this year. Why do they call it the spring coho run? Is it because they are spawning at this time and where can you expect to catch these fish, from shore? Is it the same as the king spawn in the fall? Any info would be appreciated.

The spring "Coho Run" starts anywhere from Mid March thru June depending on which part of the Lake you fish. They will start down at the Southwestern tip in Indiana early, then as the water temps warm they`ll follow the Western shore up and usually arrive at the Waukegan/North Point area around the beginning of May. This again is all based on water temps. They may arrive (at North Point) mid April but generally May is a good time to start. Last year the schools stayed out in the deeper water (80` plus) for most of the spring. They are following the schools of alewife and will be as close to or far from shore as the bait. I`ve trolled in as shallow as 8` of water in past seasons. Generally the bait of choice is a "00" size dodger ahead of a "Peanut" size flie in the top 10` of the water column. It can be presented behind planer boards, dipseys, flat lines or downriggers.
The schools of coho are generally pretty big and aggressive, so once you`ve found them, you`ll have your hands full. Six man limits don`t happen on every trip but in the past they have been more the "norm" than the exception.
Good luck to all ,hopefully we`ll have another productive season out on the "Big Pond" :P See `ya on the water :wink:

You're welcome Alan! It was a pleasure to have fished with you. Maybe someday we can get together and fish out by you depending on where you're at of course.

Alan,
It was a good time having you out. Last I heard fishead was staying put and not moving out your way, but if you smell a cigar....

FishinMatt,
You are the "Peter Parker" of this site with all these off the wall shots, I don`t know if Alan had the fish or the fish had him
The pics in your signature are always worth a laugh too, Kinda` like the Avatars "Howard Sprague" puts up.

Looking forward to getting going again, too.

Wondering if baits stayed in the top 10 feet when out in 80 + FOW or if you went a little deeper for the Coho out that far? (I stayed in closer last year and did fair - except for one day when I later learned success was out in 180 FOW due to some recent big winds and muddy water in close.)
