Racine Harbor, Racine County
Dreadhead and all Pike Fisherman
YES – You can successfully target Northern Pike in the Racine harbor. The handful of fisherman that do so are the first to say, it’s not a numbers game but more of a big fish fishery. In a typical year the harbor yields several 40+ inch fish. If you’re thinking of trying the harbor for the first time, I’d suggest you check out the derby on February 3rd. Don’t be fooled by the name “Racine Trout Ice Derby”. They pay cash prizes in three categories, one of which is Northern Pike. The attached pic is the derby’s 1st place Pike from last year (40”). This derby boasts one of the largest cash payout in the state, not to mention the phenomenal contestants raffle held directly after cash prizes have been awarded. You need to go to the Salmon Unlimited website or facebook for rules and derby highlights, see link below. Don’t miss this one, check it out.
