Fish of the Week: Waukegan brown trout

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I think this finally catches me up on Fish of the Week, a pair of browns from Waukegan Harbor.


Spring signs come for area fishermen--walleye in the rivers, and coho and brown trout on the Lake Michigan lakefront. Witness North Sider Tyler Peterson with a good start on Sunday at the south wall of Waukegan Harbor.

``He nailed two brown trout--3.4 pounds and 4.6 pounds--in three hours of fishing,'' his buddy Tim O'Meara emailed. ``Not a bad start to the 2012 fishing season! GO CUBS!''

It's good to be half right in life.
