Made it out yesterday.  Dirty water and big waves was the theme of the day.  Managed to find a few fish, 5 or so. Given the conditions, I'm calling it a success.  Best bait was a brand new spoon I picked up from R&R, Superfly copper HUD 960.  Could be a winner.

Finally made it out from McKinley. Spent a couple of hours driving around scouting and looking for clean water. Fished 12-4:30 and caught 4 of these beauties. Nice day on the water. Visibility around harbor was mostly 6" to about a foot. Lagoon had 4' visibility. Found clean water in 55-60' of water straight out from main gap. Water kept getting cleaner and cleaner as you went north (and shallower). Saw very few bait fish and all nice arcs were tight to the bottom. No real pattern, caught fish on three different kinds and color spoons and one on a tin can with spin/glow. Two caught on riggers, one on dipsy and one on slide diver.

i'm guessing it will still take a couple of days before harbor cleans up. Water temp on main lake was only 35-36°.

A little late in getting this out. Fished the harbor solo on thur. From 9am till 11:30am.  Went 1 for 2. Boated this nice brown about 12# on a swr and spoon.  Had another on to the boat that was as big but lost it do to a poor net job.

Water was nice and clear but the wind was strong.  Never perfect.

It will be awhile before things clear up again. That is why I went.

Put the boat in for the first time tonight, only fished from 6 to 7:30. No fish running mostly spoons with one crank. Lots of marks by the river mouth. Water was super clear, 39 degrees. At least the boat still floats and everything works so I'll take it I guess.

Nice to see a couple of guys in a small boat out getting it done. No $50,000 boat attached to a $70,000 truck.

Good stuff.

Fished out of Milwaukee Harbor for the first time this past Saturday.  Brewers on Friday night, Browns on Saturday, and a Baptism on Sunday.  Came down from Door County.  Really cold, but we were committed to giving it a shot.  Trolled up and down from the Summerfest Grounds to south of the river about a half mile.  First 2 hours nothing, didn't mark much, then right in front of the river, clouds of baitfish with hooks below.  Went 2 for 4 in about an hours time, all on dipseys with spoons.  Watermelon.  28-31' of water and if we didn't slow down, 1.3-1.5 mph and get down to 25' we didn't get bit.  Overall fun outing.  Lasted 3 hours, temps under 30 degrees.  Looking forward to the ice coming off of Green Bay...might be a bit yet.  Tight Lines!

How's the harbor this weekend

Has the west wind cleaned it up at all

Can you catch lake trout jigging the gaps (in addition to Brown's in the river and marinas)
