Made my annual trek to chicago and the lake, wow. Monday a north wind made for tough conditions, nothing doing at the mouth of the harbor and the shoe. Tuesday started out the same, but i headed out to the shoe and lost two nice fish, a ten and a twenty. Lure: storm thunderstick in firetiger, u can't go wrong. Slow retrieve on the inside, near the tip like the old days. Cast across near where the sand is visible, and slow retrieve it back and...WHAMMO. The first one spit the hook, and the second I set the hook one too many times and she broke me off at the net. Oh, bring a long net and a buddy, netting seems to be a lost art these days and if you don't have one good luck walking it to the beach!
Tight lines fellas!!!!
