Montrose Coho This Morning

The coho are in at Montrose. I saw at least 25 caught this morning. I managed to get two on a green and silver cleo. I started with nightcrawlers with no luck then went to large shinners, again no luck. When I changed to the spoon I had my first one on in less than 10 minutes. In all I had 5 strikes and got the 2. I will be back tomorrow with the spoon ready.

Nice work!

How far out on the Horseshoe were you fishing when you got hits on the spoon?

Inside or outside?

What color/size spoon?

My friend already posted info on our trip today fishing the plentarium (1 Coho on Powerline w/Nightcrawler). It tried a few spoons & a couple rapalas w/no luck.

Thanks for the info - JC

Wasn't on the shoe, we were in the harbor on the golf course side. I heard they were getting a few on the shoe fishing at the tower lakeside.
Thanks for the info Smeltaholic. Were all 25 fish you saw caught in the harbor? That would be great - less wind tomorrow.

What color spoon(s) did you get hits on?

Thanks again! - JC
Went back today and the wind had changed. I had one on right off. The third cast. The fishing the rest of the day was slow and I only managed one one a large minnow. The spoons that seem to work best are the little cleo green and chrome. I only saw 5 fish caught today. They were getting a lot of small perch. ( 6 to 8 inches ) All the coho seem to be where ever you can get the wind to your back.
Thanks again for the info. Tried Montrose late morning (Crawlers, spoons) with no luck & my rooomate already posted his 4lb Brown from Belmont.
