Trolled around Milwaukee Harbor and out to 45 feet on lake on 12 2 from 930am to 4 pm. Fish seemed to be by middle and south gaps. Rigger down 25 with spoon took 2, spoon on 4 color took 1 and crankbaits on 3 color took 3 . All browns between 18 and 24 inches but am happy with results for 1st trip to Milwaukee after browns.

I was out on my nephews boat (fv. Pocket Kings)  sunday morning. We were surprised to see about a dozen boats launching at McKinley around 7:00 am. We went out into the lake, but most boats stayed in the harbor. We found the lakers were in 35-60 fow. Ended the morning @ 11:00 With 6 big lakers and a 8# brown. We lost 2 more big lakers @ the boat. Rigger @ 25 down & 3-5 color  leadcores took fish on standard copper spoons. The 5 color with a mass confusion spoon was the best. It was a little cold out there the the good fishing made it tolerable.

Don't know about Mckinley or South shore, but the National  Ave pier is still in. Jigged up two lakers and 5 browns today, plus a few missed smacks.

I was wondering if McKinley marina still has the docks in. Or would south shore be a better bet? I dont like the national ave launch. But if i have to use it i will. Hope everyone has the best of luck fishing and hunting!

Got out sunday but later than I wanted and not for too long.  Fished roughly 215-345ish in the afternoon.


The winds had shifted to southeast so we didnt go out too far, set up in 35 fow and headed towards the filter getting to about 50 fow.  Went 1/1 with a 2.3# brown on 8 color lead core - blue flounder pounder spoon. 

Fish hit in around 50 fow.  Rough water pushed us off but got the gf her first trout at least.


Thanks for the advice all.

For the DNR rule change on lake trout, here is the document detailing the  proposed rule change (FH-21-16):

http://dnr.wi.gov/About/NRB/2016/December/12-16-2C1.pdf

And here's the minutes of the January 2017 meeting stating it was approved (page 8):

Also found a news release that summarizes the changes:

Fish Dr. - Temp as of Sunday in the harbor was 49.7 on the surface.  Didn't have the depth raider to give you temp readings under the surface.
