So here's the deal...Chromeseeker and I were gonna perch fish...he had done well the night prior over at Gilson. But when he got there this Friday, while I was still in the office, he found nothing but muddy waters!

Thus I ended up going solo. I figured I'd hit Kenosha Harbor, toss some spoons and maybe get lucky. Got there around 7:30 and pretty much had the place to myself...2 other guys were working the sweet spot so I let them be.

There was plenty of bait around; the gulls were picking it off left and right. Mostly really small stuff, around 1-2". A smaller Kastmaster in silver and green brought me two hits, both missed, and that's about all I can say! Well, I did snag a number of these shadlike fish...maybe Menhadden?

10:00 the bite turned on, well, maybe not "the bite" but rather some fish started feeding on the surface. Can't say whether they were carp or the browns! By 10:30 PM I'd had my fill..snapped off a good amount of my line so I called it a night!
