Was between veterns and McKinley back in the slips right next to iron wall last Sunday morning . Landed 3 jigging and missed 3. Best day this year (sad compared to years past). No hogs. Marked multiple fish every time. Black and silver spoon tipped with fathead tail. 3 ft off bottom

All seriousness, there's a road leading directly to Veteran's Park boat slips. Use your map.

Don't use the launch until locals have spudded out there. It was open water 2 days ago. Probably fine but no one has been out since the cold snap.

Yes. I have an airboat service that leaves Mckinley every 10 minutes.

Short answer. Not really. You can get them here and there in the harbor or down in Racine but nothing like the whitefish slaughterfest out in Green Bay.

Silver fish/pre-spawn are those fish that have recently moved into shore from Lake Michigan.

Colored fish are those that have been in the river/basin & are ready to spawn or if trout are falling back/post spawn to Lake Michigan.

Regardless of strain, browns & steelhead are "dime bright" while in Lake Michigan, but when they come into shore to spawn they will achieve those great colors.

He's referring to the silver colored browns. They are called seaforellons. (Sorry for spelling) there are two species of browns that come into the harbors down there. The one in your post is a German Brown. From what I've found, they taste pretty much the same. There are also a few different species of rainbows/steelhead in Lake Michigan too. Those seem to all have the same taste as well, imo. (I'm not implying that bows taste like browns)

fishingmaster- The best fish he's ever had? lol. The silver or winter browns taste fine, the colored fish not so much.

dink- There is a wealth of information on this thread, take the time and look through old posts. everything you could ever need to know is in there. And getting skunked is more than likely right now, regardless of how much you know. just a part of fishing here, high risk, high reward if you catch my drift....

On to the report-

Out all weekend with a fairly large group, 3 fish in roughly 84 man hours. I'd say thats pretty darn slow. I'll be out next on Sunday.

I've heard recently from my cousin that the jets on the docks, by veterans park, were taken out? Need clarification because those jets do draw in a lot of fish under the docks which is key to how I like and would prefer to fish. Thanks.
