Fished from 7 to 11, no takers,speed 2.0 to 3.0, spoons,thin fins and DF. Cover 15 to 50 FOW. No takers no hits. A few reports on radio stated it was slow, a few guys had one or two. Another said he had 8 coho, 4 king's. Will try again. Be safe out there. Surface temperature at Port area was 47 to 48 degrees.

Just to clarify, when you say port is this the port of Indiana? And number 4, where is this located?

I've never fished Portage and west but planning to very soon.

Actually, the Port of Indiana was built in the mid 70s and it encompassed what was called Burns Harbor. So I suppose one could say Burns Harbor is inside the Port of Indiana.  When they built the outer breakwall the eastern most end of the north breakwall had a marker sign with a big number 2 on it.  The farthest northwest corner had a big marker with a number four on it and there was also a #6 marker at the mouth of Burn's Waterway.  Every winter the ice would crash the signs and every summer, someone would stand them back up.  Sometime later that tradition was dropped but "old timers" still call the place the #4 marker.  Few if any use the #2 and I don't know if anyone ever mentioned the #6 marker.
