For folks that have never done it... a couple of new guides on how to get started.

Thanks! What about this time of year? Is it just no good on the big lake down south here? You don't hear of many people taking boats out of MI City or anything around this time.

It can be good, typically the action for immature coho and kings and steelhead is offshore. Occasionally when conditions are right, mature steelhead and salmon can be caught at the pierheads

Most guys shelve their boats due to hunting season and impending winter weather

But the action for salmon and trout really never stops, you just have to pick your days and occasionally go far offshore
