Alewives will still be probably the best presentation. Spoons and natural cranks also.
Racine Harbor, Racine County
So with the prevailing westerly winds the next week we all expect the fish to come back closer to shore. My question is, is it too late to try and use live or dead Alewives for these fish, or should we be breaking out the gawdy, large J-13s? My thinking is the fish will still be actively feeding, as it is a little too early for them to start shutting down. What approach will you be using?

Kayak fished the harbor from 530 to 8 pm tonight. 4 very large Drums ( Yuck). Flame colored 2/5 th ounce Cleos ( If you want to target them) .
I never did find that 154 foot deep hole Action 21 found in the Racine HARBOR thread ( LOL).
Dipped out of the gap for about 1/2 mile and they didn't want what I was pulling out there either.
Nice night to be out of the harbor in a kayak...except for the A-holes that like to give 5 foot wakes to us kayakers,. I'm tempted to snap a photo of one of the "boaters" and make sure that wake sinks me...then I can get a new Hobie...at their expense.
Hats off to the real boaters who respected their wake. Thank You.

Fished south pier Sunday from around noon till 3:30 ish. Saw about a dozen people fishing but, didn't see anyone catch anything... Had a couple hits! Reeled in to find just the head of my bait remaining... I casted with one rod using a 3/8 oz jig w/ 3in pearl white gulp. Other two, I soaked med shinners on the bottom.
Good Luck All!

Fished this morning from 7am till 9:30ish right at the harbor entrance. Saw a few jumpers but nothing biting except for 3 mongo sheepshead. I did have a huge northern follow up my kalins jerk minnow and took a half hearted swip at it but no dice.
