FISHING REPORT
2/27/15 11:53 PM CST
Ice Depth: 8"
Just about as slow as it gets right now. I fished from 5am to 4 pm and only managed two tiny trout. There was a guided group of 12 out there today and they only got a few. Didn't see anyone else catch anything. I'm taking Saturday off. Be back out there on Thursday if anyone would like to join me.

Bob's bait is closed will not reopen..ever The best bait shop in Milwaukee is on 54 and Villard. Ya i know in the ghetto, but the shiners there are of great quality and he is one of the only ones who sells emerald shiners. Sportsmen's Den is the name. As far as advice, go to veterans park entrance off of lincoln memorial. Park near the kite shop, you will see slips there. If your back is a problem park right in front of the gate so u are right there to unload. You will want spawn sacks and large minnows. I have been having more success on minnows vs. last year when spawn sacks were the bees knees. I suggest you ARRIVE at 5 AM. This place is an absolute zoo on weekends so get there really early. My favorite spot is at the end of the slips where the break wall curves. Set your autos with 3 different depths. Just under the ice, just off the bottom, and 8 feet in the middle. That way you cover all depths. Cool

Kc9cuK,

I used to fish McKinly marina, right on Lake Shore Drive. Short walk to fishing. This is where most people ice fish the harbor. No close bait shop so buy your stuff local. if you want to go to BOB'S BAIT 1126 S 108th St Milwaukee, WI 53214 they have bait and knowledge of how to fish the harbor, a little out of your way but not too far. good luck

hey guys! my buddy and I will be going out to the harbor for the first time this sat. We are both avid ice fisherman but have never been to or fished the harbor. We are going for trout and would like a little help were does everyone usually park and setup and any good bait shops close by to stop and bait up. I give help to a lot of guys on lake link and hope for little in return we will see. I welcome all advice we would like to park close to were we need to fish I have a bad back and have to drag my shelter any help would really be appreciated like I said we are going to come out in the morning thanks guys and be safe on the ice.

Burnin, where do you park and access the river? I'm from Jeff. Co. and only ever ice fished in McKinley. I'd really like to try the river this spring and summer, too, if it's worth it.

Are there any other lake link pages to check out for spring & summer fishing info downtown?

Spawnman I was out on the menomonee river just west of the harley museum Sunday from 1pm to 4pm. There was no ice and none was flowing down the river. Steam was rising off the river all day. Strong winds coming out from the north west put wind chills in the -10 to -20 range. We had 5' to 7' rods with large shiners suspended about 6 to 8 ft down from a bobber. Between the 2 of us we had 1 northern and 1 nice eater brown trout. Pretty slow for that spot. Same spot years ago caught limit on salmon and trout. Cool

I know it's not the season but I would like to prepare. During the salmon run I met a few guys that let me use some cured skein and I'm hooked. I would like to cure my own and would like input on what color works best? I've seen red, pink, orange. On the procure website there are different colors like glo orange or fluorescent orange for example. What colors do you guys use? Also what about the color of borax? I would be purchasing procures brand of cures and borax.
