Does it really bother some of you that much that people eat browns and you don't?? Just let it go, not everyone thinks the same as you...

Browns don't live at the discharge. They visit. Ever see where a pig lives? And you eat that?

Rain brings in runs very well. Plus with all the snow melting it should be great.

Havent been down to docks but usually by this time theyre open. Otherwise theres always the pier and spots in the harbor. Im thinking river though this weekend. If it doesnt produce ill move for open waters.

Couple questions guys. Never been to Milwaukee but I'm planning on going this weekend.

1. Does the rain affect the brown/rainbow trout?

2. Are the docks open in Mckinley?

Is this before or after you flush? I know you are a marine biologist and all, but can we please get back to fishing reports?

If you accidentally dropped a candy bar in the toilet after releasing a big deuce, would you reach in there, grab it, and eat the candy bar?

Eating brown trout from the poop discharge harbor is basically the same thing.

The ramps are still OK and the Brown Trout action has been good. Casting is better than spawn unless you are just after those spawners milling around. There are plenty of new fish and post spawn fish hitting lures.

Planning on coming up Saturday with a few friends and fishing the harbor. Are the ramps usable with all this cold weather? We will be bringing salt Smile Anyone been out this week? I know the weather has been awful, any help would be appreciated, thanks!

As far as taste goes; I don't understand why some of them taste good and some you need to bread and deep fry. Just with the browns... one year olds, had them that taste good and some that don't. I think I had a rainbow that did not taste to well also. But then there's times that they really taste good. And its not the wifes cooken. Lips Sealed

I personally don't care if a person keeps a big brown, but just saying that eating them is really not a good idea.

Researchers estimate that 95 percent of the PCB load to the Lake Superior ecosystem comes from the atmosphere... quote from web. I think it would be about the same or less in lake Michigan (they stated that Superior was the worst). This being true, the air is out over the deep as well. A different article that said that they even found pcbs in Natives breast milk way up in the Arctic! Tell me how they run that survey? I also did read about a company that, before the ban dumped pcb byproducts in the Milwaukee river where it remains today. So some of that trickles down. Not accounting for the time there is runoff because of excess rain, the treated water from the plant goes out 7 miles into the lake. I don't know if pcbs are removed at the plant. I eat the fish but keep to the guidelines. Not to say I have a freezer full of trout and salmon for every month of the year. What I wonder is, are some of the people that are dead set against eating them really pro catch and release? The body is made to dispose of the toxins in time... just eat in moderation is you will.

When deciding to eat a brown trout or not, please keep in mind this is the Milwaukee harbor. Not only does the city of Milwaukee dump raw sewage into the harbor. There is run off from the roads,businesses and industry.

It was just a few years back when the city dumped over 1 BILLION gallons of raw sewage into the harbor. With smaller storms, they have recently dumped less sewage but are still receiving large fines from the DNR. If you are going to eat a brown, i would try the smaller fish first, should be less poo in them.

Yes it is your choice to eat the fish but keep that in mind when you are eating your first fork full.

How has the fishing been? Should be getting better with the cold temps.

Who decides what a "Trophy " fish is . If some one wants to keep a fish that's his or her choice as long as it's legal . A trophy is in the eye of the beholder . No matter what the size is . It's all about balance to much of anything isn't good . I thought the reason that each one of us reads and posts on here is to find out what every one is catching in Lake Michigan . Not to squabble about weather or not you should eat the fish . Move it to the forum DAMN IT !!!
