Well it's not really that great of a spot. Look at your Indiana map of the lakefront and you may be suprised.

It does mean a long walk, but well worth the effort.

yeah....

I sue alot of materials....angel hair, strmear hair, enrico puglisi fibers, ultra hair, etc.

I tie for a few flyshops right now.

Usually I fish anywhere in the surf. Warmwater discharges, creek mouths, pierheads, channels, harbors, etc. It's what I live for...

Keep it coming....ice out isn't that far away!

Seem to recall you saying you bypassed Indy. to fish Mi., you are missing some good surf waters.

They are all weather dependant, wind blows wrong way and you get very very wet in no time.

Yes I know about the wind factor, if its blowing hard the wrong way, there is no fly line in existence that will help you.

If you have to fish break out the spinning gear at those times in those lake front locations.

I did not explicitly say I did, but I do have it when I take my son with me as he is still spinning, throwing lures, etc...

P.S. Its not a bad idea though to have when the wind is up though. Much easier to cast longer and get deeper quicker also.

LOL

Thought you frowned on spinning gear. I seem to recall some negative posting on it.

Best tool for the job when lake or pier fishing.

Spinning/casting

I agree - best rods for SURFING, too -

In late April or May, "Let's go surfin" sounds good to me!

Nothing like double hauling into Lake Michigan head wind with the long rod and fly.

I don't usually bring the spinning rods, only with my sons.

Don't want any one taking pictures of me though with one of those in my hand.

LOL

Funny thing is, in all my years fishing rivermouths I have yet to see anyone using that method.

Everyone I see is flinging harware or bait. Don't think its too popular in our area of the pond.

Yeah....

Not too popular, but productive if you know what you are doing. You can find me with the long rod when fishing off pierheads and breaks, otherwise I am using 9'6" 8 or 9wt's and clear, intermediate lines for shy fish and along the beaches when chasing pods.

I'll be on the beaches soon.....cannot wait!

MJYP,

If you see one in south lake michigan it is probably me, I did not see any other fly fisher out there in 2002. I feel like a pioneer.

Never saw one in the south end of the lake, can't count casting from the N. Buffalo parking lot as surf fishing. Saw lots of guys with spinning gear doing it, no fly casters. Our end is not really that slick for true surf fishing, now the U.P. is another story.

Lots of user friendly rivermouths with no boats, piers, or man made objects.
