Default Waukegan - 5/29 PM

went out with the bro-in-law last night after softball for a few hours after dark....water was warm - probably at least 10 degrees higher than over the weekend (just a guess). hooked into a nice drum about 10 minutes into the excursion...had me fooled that i lucked into a salmonid for a moment. otherwise nothing to note, too warm to really justify being out there....will be putting away the salmon gear for a while and waiting on some cooler temps.

I was there for a few hours before dark and at 7:15 or so I picked up a nice lil coho to finish off my July slam. (brown, steelie, king, and ho). Other than that I didn't see much else happening, except that when we were getting ready to leave, there were quite a few fish surfacing around the pier. Not sure what they were but it didn't seem like they were carp cause they weren't obviously brown. We did see some "silver" fish surfacing but unsure of exact species. Water was 60 last night on the bottom

Nice 'ho last night, Bass1388! You really have that beer bottle rig/alewive technique down - excellent July slam!

Winds and air temps are not supposed to be favorable at Waukegan for the next few days - seems like late night/early morning fishing under the lights will have the greatest chance of being productive.
