Fished from the pier in mckinely harbor from 5-8:30 probably 75 people fishing only saw 2 fish caught. I lost one on an alwive on the bottom bit through a 14lb flouro leader waves were terrible washing up onto the pier. Had to keep clearing the bait that was covered in seaweed
Lake Michigan - Milwaukee Harbor, Milwaukee County
Inside the harbor… I have the same boat and would be fine with it. Outside in the lake is sort of a different deal. I go out, big thing is if the wind is changing directions, or gusting above that. A lot of it comes down to comfort level, and boat set up.
Quick question for you guys. What is your go to length for running lures behind a downrigger ball? Do you run your spread all the same or stagger them out in some fashion? Is there a reason why you would change the "normal" length behind the ball?
Just trying to get some info about how to run a good setup! Thanks again guys!
Looking for a little information. I've fished the red railing around the Hoan Bridge and Summerfest grounds in the colder weather. What is the access like for fishermen down there now, with all the festivals that take place down there? I am looking to gain access Friday and this weekend to the parking/fishing area from under the Hoan Bridge around the red lighthouse to that park east of the Summerfest grounds. What are my chances?
