I am a long time shore angler in the NW suburbs, also do some salmon fishing from a freind's boat out of Winthrop Harbor. I am always looking for someone to fish with, it is a sport that is best enjoyed with another. If you live within a reasonable distance of me (Cary) drop me a PM and perhaps we can hook up. I have some out of the way spots that while not secrets, are not well known.
I am a multi-species angler who tends to catch what is biting and throw it back unless it is really good eating. I don't eat trophys, I throw them back.
