Hey got a couple questions for all you Salmon buffs. I don’t fish for them much, is the King run over? How long does it usually last? I thought I remember last year seeing them in the river this time last year but haven’t seeing anything but dead ones. Any info on them would be much appreciated.
Lake Michigan - Milwaukee Harbor, Milwaukee County
Not 100% true. The regulations states " to fish with more than three hooks, baits, or lures." Stating that one bait with 3 trebles is one unite can be misleading. The DNR follows this simple rule, if it is a rig/lure that can catch multiple fish then it is multiples into that 3 rule. So that's why an umbrella rig is illegal if it has more than 3 hooks on it, but a quick set rig would be considered 1. A crappie rig would be considered as many as it has hooks. A crankbait is considered 1 no matter the number of hooks technically.
So what Jericho stated is true, just not the most complete.
You may use up to 3 treble hooks...one bait w three trebles is considered as one unit...1 treble alone is 1 unit...crappie rig with 2 hooks ( or treble hooks ) is one unit.
Therefor: You can fish w 2 lines ( one with one hook and the 2nd w 2 hooks...crappie rigs is legal). 3 lines w single or single treble is limit.
When in doubt ask an oldtimer or consult the rule book / regulations!!

Can someone tell me is there any regulations against anchoring while fishing in the harbor? My buddy thought there was. I see plenty of people anchored though. I understand it would not be smart to anchor in any main boat traffic channels. Any info appreciated

Fished the harbor from 4:45 to 8:30 am. Didn't get a single bite...only saw 4 fish caught.
Didn't have my trolling stuff with me and that's what people where getting fish on.
Better luck next time.
