10/15/10 – There are lots of fish in Cook County lakes, the trick is to know where they are and how to catch them. WTIP wants to help fill out your stringer by posting a weekly report on what’s biting and where.

Our fishing expert, Jon Muhich of Buck’s Hardware, says fishing is still slow – it’s like ice fishing for walleyes.
Everyone is still fishing deep for WALLEYES. Saganaga and Seagull lakes are reporting fish between 35 and 50 feet using a jig and minnow. Poplar is also a nice place to try and they’re fishing between 25 and 35 feet there using a jig and minnow. The word is that Cascade is reporting some fish in that 25 to 30 foot range using a jig and minnow. But the fishing is still pretty tough.
A few RAINBOWS are hitting in some area lakes such as Leo, Esther and Trout using nightcrawlers in 18 to 25 feet of water. Trout fishing in lakes ends at the end of the month so take advantage of the good weather.
