Suddenly, steelhead big and plentiful

A huge catch of yard-long Skamania steelhead was taken last weekend by the group of anglers aboard Jeff Carlin's Reel Dirty. 

MICHIGAN CITY – A massive surge of Skamania steelhead last weekend added another "wow" moment to a season of wows for Lake Michigan trollers.

On Friday, things were relatively quiet, but good. Most boats were into coho to the tune of five to 10 chunky salmon plus a couple steelies per boat, which is far better than recent summers, particularly in Indiana waters.
