Panfishpete,

Fishing is a little slow on the lake right now. It should start to pick back up in the next couple of weeks.

Smokin Reel, 

Thank you. Going to check into it today. As I have never fished here before is this typically a good time of the year to get out or would it be better to wait a couple weeks, month, etc?

Is about as good as they get out of Milwaukee. He should be able to take care of your needs.

Hi the wife and I are looking to take a half day or full day trip out on lake Michigan. I am a bass fisherman and have never been on lake Michigan, mostly stick to smaller southern Wisconsin lakes. We have a friend who was recently diagnosed with cancer and has talked about wanting to get out for a day of fishing on lake Michigan. He hasn't fished much in his life so we were thinking we'd surprise his with a guided trip. Could anybody give a suggestion on a good guide to hire for either a full or half day trip? He has 4 young boys he's like to bring as well so looking more for action than anything. We live in Rockford which is about an hr and a half south of Milwaukee. Willing to travel farther to find the best action and guide. Could somebody please direct us in the direction of a good guide? Thank you in advance

Tough morning. Dropped in at around 3am fished til 8.  Tons of bait around the gaps. From 3 to 6 we marked a lot of uncooperative fish. Most were hanging deep beneath the bait pods, almost on the bottom. From 630 to 8 we bounced around different locations and marked less and less fish as the morning went on. Found the most active fish about 1/2 mile south of the south gap

Smallies you shld be able to find forsure. I dont own a boat but have caught them from shore all over the harbor from south shore to summerfest pond and the inside of mckinley off the rocks. With a boat im sure u cld find more i hear the area by the new fbi building is good for smallmouth some largemouths around too. This is one of the bigger ones i have caught from shore

Here's a link to the pier thread: https://www.lake-link.com/wisconsin-fishing-reports/mckinley-pier-lake-michigan-milwaukee-county/19064/

That said, your best info comes from some footwork. From the river by Summerfest grounds under the Hoan Bridge - north to the Mckinley breakwall you can find different spots with guys fishing. Also, check the Rideshare thread on the Forums page under Great Lakes....I've had luck hitching rides with guys going out of McKinley launch early in the morning. Just gotta ask and possibly offer gas $. Many guys prefer not to fish solo.

Good luck

New to the Milwaukee area and want to get into the salmon/trout scene. Where can I go shore fishing and most popular baits? Thanks!
