Default Waukegan pier - Government pier fishing report?

Ok - I haven't been out to the end of Government pier fishing for about 12-15 years or so. We used to go out ther about now and catch jumbo perch and the odd coho years ago.

My question is - is it still worth going out there for perch today? I've recently move to the area and just remembered how close it is to me now (Round Lake). If so, are lake shiner, fatheads and golden roaches still the way to go?

I've always used a thre-way rig as well. Any info would be great.

Thanks,
TNote

T-Note,
Yes, the government pier is still a great place to fish perch, all the way out on the end by the lighthouse. Lake shiners are not avalable this time of year, guys are using the large fathead minnows, soft shell crabs,baby and medium roaches, and jigging kastmasters off the bottom. It sounds like the early morning guys are doing a little better, but you can fish it anytime you want.
Give me a call if you need anything else, like 10inchgill said, my banner is on the left!
Good fishin',
Lori
