rainbows are starting to check out the harbor. Found a 10# fish on sat during the rain on a green stinger. They are very skittish right now so stealth is key
Racine Harbor, Racine County
Hi, My wife and I were planing in shore fishing on Sunday 10/1/17 but the waives were so high and it was so windy that we could not. Does anyone know what we should look for as far as wind speed and waive height to know if it is calm enough to fish?
Didn't see any jumpers or mark any fish in the boat launch basin last week. Not to say they aren't there now, but all the fish we saw and caught were up in the harbor and in the river. All the fish we had hooked up or caught were all on cranks and all at night. We did see a few caught during the day on skein. I just cant seem to get a sniff on the stuff, plus I'd rather catch my fish casting anyways.

Fished the Harbor and the river up to the Main Street Bridge on Fri and Sat. Marked a bunch of fish in the river and around the gaps. Fish weren’t active until night. We ended up with 6 fish combined for the two days. We had many more hooked up and lost. Should have had three times that in the box, but that’s Fishing. 5/6 fish were males. Average size of 18 pounds or so with the biggest at 22. Fish were all pretty dark, but still had plenty of fight left in them. All fish were caught on crankbaits.
