Fishin… you'll find a little more info on this thread for fishing out of the harbor in a boat.

http://www.lake-link.com/Wisconsin-Fishing-Reports/report.cfm/44198/Lake-Michigan-Racine-County/

I was out early this am and went 2 for 5 on cohos in 50' of water… missing others in net. I did about the same a few nights ago…. I personally go when I can, and have not been skunked yet this year, AM or PM.

I fish out of a 17' boat, and with a little common sense, you'll gain confidence and find a 19' boat with deep sides is ok out on the lake…. again, common sense days.

Spent a bunch of time trolling boards up on Petenwell and am interested in giving Lake Michigan a shot. Drove over to the 6th st dock last evening to watch some boats come in and out and found a dead sea? Lot was empty?? We had a N/NW wind blowing at 5 knots. Didn't check to see if a small craft warning was up but didn't think it looked to bad. Is the Racine area only good for a morning bite? Will I be wasting my time trying to fish in the evenings?

I know I'm going to have to gear up for the trout and salmon and have started researching online.

I've got a 19ft boat so it's probly going to be fair weather fishing for me.

Any suggestions guys? May also be looking for another interested fisherman, LOL my wife has no interest in the big water!!!

Thanks for the info GEICO! Sounds very interesting I might have to do that. One thing that I do want to point out though...is it is not the amount of time I spend fishing salmon-a-rama,but rather all the other bs associated with it. They change the shore fishing part almost every year now. Stick with one thing and improve on that don't change it just to say you changed it to make it better. You haven't. I am finished talking about it! this is suppose to be for fishing reports anyway,

Sorry all! It is just how I feel!

If you are not interested in Salmon-A-Rama Fish the Racine Trout ice derby? it pays out more money, only three fish categories, limited to harbor only and you only put in 6.5 hours of fishing time = $20 includes many great raffle prices. Light lines!! Geico & Son

No I have not and will not attend any of their meetings! I have had talks with Tom P. about this tournament over the last couple of years. I have given suggestions and was told they could not be done. Pretty close minded group you bought into. Good for you! If that is what makes you feel special then do what you have to do. Never took you as a sellout,but If this is what makes you happy God bless you! Wink

I'm not part of this… but will add, if you don't go to meetings, become part of the process, and try to improve things from inside, it is far harder. It sounds like the format is very cool for this season… I hope it is a great contest for all!

WOW!!!! The "GREAT" skamanic, He will surely get this all fixed for us shore fisherman,but I will still donate my money to keep this going for the rest of you. I gave many suggestions to these people over the last several years and all I kept getting told was..."oh well we can't do that". So I guess they are real interested in our input. Keep up the good pr work for them luv2hunt&fish. Puke

Ok guys instead of complaining like I use to do why not get involved like some of us shore guys did! We became Salmon Unlimited members and Good friend Skamanic which also runs The Burnout Bash. He is the voice for us shore guys and is on the SAR committee and got it changed back to fish species instead of the biggest fish. I will let him know about this post and maybe he can give you more answers then me. But yes shore guys are eligible to win the grand prize! Don't quote me on it but besides the $500 for first place for each fish species the grand prize for the biggest fish on shore is $1,500 if that's what I see on the picture I posted.

Crap. My fault. Not going to even try to make up an excuse. Actually, species specific is a pretty cool way to divide up the prizes. Please don't flame me fellow fishing bra's.

Koolaid, you might want to look at the website again. It looks like they are going back to top 5 for each species again so first place onshore is for coho, brown, chinook and rainbow, so it's $500 for each specie

I'll reiterate. I have no issue with anyone with a boat. We (shore fisherman) have been eligible for the grand prize ever since I started competing in this tournament. However, the odds are with the off shore anglers. And that's fine because the 1st place prize has always been near 1000 dollars for on shore division. To cut that in half and make the 1st prize dollar winnings the same as youth division is a slap in the face. Again, NO issue with boaters. Perhaps they need to move the tournament grounds back to festival hall. At least we all will get screwed. Not just some of us.

hey koolaid please read all the rules but i think you are wrong ,yes you are right about the first place prize being 500.00. but if you get the largest fish overall you are eligable for the 20,000 grand prize. payouts are based out on numbers of entrys for the onshore division. boat division has been funding onshore div for many years. if you interested in making it a better tournament for the shore division contact the salmon a rama committe. everyone please read the rules completely.
