FISHING REPORT

This is a late report from Friday. We took a 140 heading out of Manty and set in at 15 miles, trolled to 17 miles and then back towards port. Fished to about 10 miles and were 5/9 with 4 Bows and 1 Laker, did break one off. Fish were scattered with no real spot to target. Warmer water would help, hopefully the best is yet to come.

It’s like fishing in June on the Willie Bee. Fog, cold water, and rainbow trout. Some morning catches, hopefully when the fog clears the fish remain active. A mix of UV spoons on the surface in 60 feet of water.

Was fishing last night on the north breakwater at sunset. Who on the south pier snagged the fishing boat at sunset? That was quit entertaining......

Fishing was blahhh this weekend with kings hard to find. The only one we caught we threw back last night. 7/7 last night and 3/3 this morning in 50-90fow. No rhyme or reason to anything. All bows and coho with two lakers. few nice fish caught off the piers. Full moon isn't helping and I'm getting a radar for next year.....??

Skunk last night and 2/5 or something this morning. Been working near shore, it has been tough. There is fish to be had off shore- I won't take my big boat out there, it's a POS and won't cruise. Maybe it will get better soon.

Left the Manty pierheads ~ 2:15 PM Thursday intent on taking a boat ride and finding the fish. Decided to run deep, with visions of leaping double-digit rainbows and maybe a stray king in our heads.

Took a 140 heading and pushed "go". After 17 miles, the surface temp had warmed up one degree, being a balmy 48 degrees. Stopped and dropped the probe, it was 43 degrees at 45 feet, 39 degrees at 85 feet. Not exactly what I was looking for.

Pushed on for another 4 miles, in that span the surfact warmed to 51 - 52. Started setting up in 405 at ~ 21 miles from the harbor.

Put the probe down, 43 degee water was still ~ 45 feet, and 38 down 90. Set the winning spread with nothing below 45 and started workign north towards some breaks closer to TR.

Enjoyed a fantastic couple of hours with Kid Joe who's heading back to college, BL, and Wenzel meat sticks. No fish. As we approached the area I should have set up in, we stuck 2 nice lake trout and had two other hits (which I believe were lake trout). Pulled the plug in 440, about 20 miles due east of the Manty pierheads.

Never found those leaping double-digit rainbows, but ended an enjoyable night with some fine pizza at The Buffalo.

All of that cold water is crazy. I was shivering and hands numb by the time we got back to the dock after the 21 mile run through 44 degree surface water. The shorts and thin jacket didn't quite make the cut.

Go get 'em. Wherever the heck they may be.

Good fishing for us Wednesday evening off Manitowoc. I'm not sure if I enjoy tying up the lines prior or the actual fishing must be getting old!! Cold clear water and flat we knew any King bite would be slow. I had 9 lines set at 5:30PM we pulled just after sunset working 30ft. to 50ft.. My son and I both talked Lake Trout with the cold water and their spawn also just around the corner. They must have been listening. Both 5 colors took a Laker running #3 J-plugs and a number 0 dipsy out 120ft. set between 2 & 3 with a bloody nose spoon worked. We were lucky to net all three our only bites. Laker's were last planted in the Manitowoc Harbor in 2011 and 2009. Two were females full of spawn and only one fish had bait in it's stomach an alewife. Good luck.

8/26 - Got a late start to the evenings fishing excursion leaving the dock at 6pm. Powered out past the hoard of harbor crawlers(roughly 20 at that time) and setup in 50fow hoping to find some fish that hadn't been hit in the head by the myriad of lures being dragged relentlessly by them. Found nothing but cold water. 48 on the surface and 42 down 20 feet. Threw spoons, FF, plugs, kitchen sink, but nothing got even a glance. We slid in after dark to see if there were any willing takers once the fleet had diminished by half, but with no luck. Saw one fish in the hour or so we were there being netted, but other than that, sounds like it was slow for everyone. We need a good South wind to stir things back up and move some warmer water in closer to shore...can't believe i would ever be saying that in late August, but it's the truth. Good luck to all out there and be safe...with the frigid water temps, it doesn't take long to get hypothermia if you fall overboard. Tight lines. Dubble Bubble Boy

Hit or Miss action this week on the Willie Bee. Water temps in the low 40's kept us at the pier heads, but we pushed out when the short window of bites were over. Lots of fish and bait fish, but no pattern to getting them to hit a lure. Had a triple on in close, for some added excitement. We did find a few rainbows scattered from 60-150 feet, with a nice 15 lb bow that gave us a long battle in cold water off a outside board.

Doubt they had an axe to grind. Keep in mind you may not block the harbor mouth to navigation, trolling or not. This happens a lot this time of year.
