Sorry guys. This is not a fishing report. I'm new to the area and am looking for someone who may be looking for a fishing partner or extra hand. I don't have a boat but will pitch in for bait and gas and wherever else is needed. I also have my own gear and bait. Just really looking for sumone to fish with.

Awesome job Edward!!! We also got some coho's today which is great to see!

Made it out at 7:00 AM this morning and fished till around 1:30 pm we caught several nice fish jigging gulp but the action was not fast and furious, nor did I mark a lot of fish so we started to troll. We ended up with over 30 fish with some nice browns, lakers, and cohos. Best bait was a sunset flicker shad, and clown flicker shad back 30-75 feet. Had several triples and doubles once we found the fish and the weather was great. My suggestion is stay away from the dirty water, some color is fine but most of the main harbor is shot and we fished out in the main lake today and never saw another boat until we came back to the harbor. if your looking for coho's you'd probably do ok trolling with peanut fly's in and around the main gap or north gap. The fish were up higher in the water column which can be typical for warming calm days in the spring. Cool to see a few kings around the gaps and green can hopefully it's another great year on the big pond! Best of luck and be safe!

put the kayak in at 630 this morning at south shore. with the weather coming in, and locator batteries dead as soon as i got out of the breakwall, i decided to concentrate on the south gap area. picked up one nice coho on a glow army truck coyote 3.5 down 15ft, also had 2 other hits on this spoon that did not connect. Also picked up a football brown(CPR) and a 10lb king(4 year old? she had little eggs) on a very small needlfish spoon, orange/yellow down 30ft. decided to call it quits around 1030, as the wind was picking up, and I had enough fish to drag all the way back in, and I forgot my pee bottle. Very happy with my first kayak trip this year, especially because I was fishing blind. I will be out fishing from shore tonight if we don't get any thunder.

Well I made the trip from the U.P. Water conditions were merky at best. About 20 boats in the harbor jigging and trolling. Did not see a single fish caught by anyone. Was too rough to leave the harbor in a 17' Crestliner. Fished from 7:30am-12:30. Started by jigging Vibratos, white powerbait on darters. Finished by trolling spoons, huskyjerks, thundersticks, reef runners, and thin fins. Was nice to have the boat in some open water again. Water needs to clear up and I'm sure fishing will pick up. Thanks to all who helped and sent PMs. Was greatly appreciated! Now back to Walleye mode in the U.P.

did some casting from shore this morning, found some clear water but it was very cold. Caught one big laker on a moonshine spoon and one nice brown on white gulp.

Just in cAse anybody was wondering, the harbor is still chocolate milk, and the river is a different color of chocolate milk. There was a nice mud line from the county line all the way north to te filter but te west winds this afternoon mixed it up a little.

Sorry not a report. I'm coming down from the Upper Peninsula this weekend to escape the ice and get the boat wet. Was planning on trolling Sheboygan but weather may not allow that. Was thinking about jigging or trolling the harbor. I know absolutely nothing about the area other than what I've read on LL. Could anyone share advice on which launch to use, techniques, areas. I'm not asking for a handout, just something to get me started. Boat can be rigged for any style of fishing including downriggers if necessary. PM if intersted. Thank you and tight lines.

Buddy and I did well on the perch on Saturday morning. Good size too, no monsters but all from 11" to 13". 3 way rigs and mid size fatheads. Tight lines all. Fished just east of the Hoan.

Right on Ed. Personally I wouldn't keep any since so many taxidermists are getting exceptionally good at making replica mounts with good pictures and measurements.

Has anyone been fishing from the shore at and around summerfest and McKinley marina? I'd like to go but am not sure because most if the reports of fish being caught are from guys on boats. I'd appreciate some info. Thanks.
