Out tonight in the harbor/marina from 4-8. Picked up an awesome guy at the landing who was from Michigan here on business and just wanted to catch a salmon. Ended up going 1-7 for the night. Broke off 1 fish jigging. The rest were on the same trolling pattern that is still holding up. Fishing was just picking up as we called it a night. The captain needed some sleep.

Drewa actually put me on fish! He didn't hog them all for himself. I'm now out of the red now on strikes. Thanks to him for letting me keep my boat dry the last week. Pay attention to speed!!! Like reported below... it is really important. I also found a great new Bucher Top Raider at the Wine n Harvest Festival this weekend.

Fished from 9pm-1am trolled in the marina area with quite a few other boats. Fish seemed to be most active right away when we started. Ended up boating two breaking off one and loosing/missing at least another ten. There are a lot of different cranks that work. Flicker shad flicker minnow walleye divers rogues basically any bait that you don't have to move very fast to get action out of it. These fish do not want the bait flying past them at a high rate of speed. All you need is to get the bait slowly wobbling and rolling back and forth. J-13 rapalas are also a favorite. Don't be afraid to switch baits often if one is not working.

Report from last night 10:30 till 4. 2 guys fishing and 1 guy just came along to net fish thanks muskyil. 6 fish in the boat 3 lost crank baits on other fish. 3 kings 1 brown 2 white perch (I believe) forgot to take pics of them. Anyways crank baits was the choice for the night. We casted and trolled every shape size and color pattern in the box. By the end of the night there were more cranks out of the tackle boxes than in. No bait outshined anything else. If it didn't get hit in five min. You were better off switching because that bait was not going to work. I wish I had a pattern to share but as of yet don't have it nailed down. Happy zombie fishing everyone!

Schooled by the Drewa again last night and can't figure out what I am doing wrong... same baits, same line, same set up... anyone, anyone, Bueller, Bueller, Bueller. Anyone else ever have this problem, or is it just me? Fished from 10:30pm - 4am with a fair number of nice Kings (but not on my line). Here is a really nice bonus Brown. FYI - Midwest Outdoors put my mug on the Wisconsin Section and a story about me on how a muskie guy can turn a salmon guy. I found the interview and article entertaining and so did my old muskie buddies out there.

Fished the north gap and marina from 6-9pm. Nothing for me, and only saw one caught by a boat in that whole time. Very nice night, lots of people out. I expected more action.

For all of you guys that may not know there is a meeting open to the public up in Cleavland WI , Lake Michigan Fisheries Forums. Here is the letter I received. The meeting takes place tomorrow evening.

DNR to provide highlights of Lake Michigan comments at Fisheries Forum event

CLEVELAND, Wis. — Leaders from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources fisheries team will summarize high priority comments and seek additional feedback on the Lake Michigan Integrated Fisheries Management Plan at Wednesday’s (Sept. 17) meeting of the Lake Michigan Fisheries Forum.

The event, free and open to the public, runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at Lakeshore Technical College, 1290 North Avenue, Cleveland, Wis. The meeting will be in the Cleveland Training Room.

The Lake Michigan Integrated Fisheries Management Plan will guide fisheries management of the lake for the next 10 years. While much has been accomplished through the previous 10 year plan, major ecological changes including the arrival and proliferation of aquatic invasive species such as the quagga mussel have made the lake less productive.

Input from anglers and other stakeholders is critical in developing the plan and the public comment period has been extended. Brad Eggold, Lake Michigan fisheries supervisor, said the Fisheries Forum meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss the high priority comments already received and solicit additional feedback.

“The Lake Michigan Fisheries Forum’s connection with the Sea Grant Institute provides an opportunity for participants to share their wealth of knowledge about the lake,” Eggold said. “We anticipate the Fisheries Forum members will offer some innovative insights into the opportunities and challenges ahead.”

The Lake Michigan Fisheries Forum provides members with the latest in research, management news and trends affecting the lake. The forum is facilitated by the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute and operates independently from DNR. Representatives from major sport fishing clubs on Lake Michigan and Green Bay, commercial fishers, the Conservation Congress and the University of Wisconsin System are formal members of the forum. Meetings are open to the public.

Comments on the Lake Michigan Integrated Fisheries Management Plan can be sent by email to DNRLakeMichiganPlan@wisconsin.gov or by mail to: Wisconsin DNR, Attn: David Boyarski, 110 S. Neenah Ave., Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235. Details of the plan can be found on the DNR website, dnr.wi.gov by searching for keywords "Lake Michigan plan."

FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT: Brad Eggold, Lake Michigan fisheries supervisor, Bradley.Eggold@wisconsin.gov, (414) 382-7921; Jennifer Sereno, communications, (60Cool 770-8084, Jennifer.Sereno@wisconsin.gov.

We are committed to service excellence.
