What good would our fishery be without forage if they keep planting millions of salmon the forage base will be non existent then there will be no fishery a few fish through a lifetime is better then killing the lake I am from the Rhinelander area and had great walleye fishing on a certain lake when it was full of shiners crayfish came in killed the shiners off and now there is no more walleye I understand this is different then my example but in the end it will be same result I also remember days of catching limits in GreenBay and cannot find them anymore on the bay side

I hear what everyone is saying about stocking reductions. Remember stocking is the only method to control numbers, other than disease, etc.

The DNR has its flaws to be sure, but in this case, look no further than the current GOP controlled state assembly and the governor for the heavy budget cuts. The gun and hunting lobby has more lobbyists so where do you think DNR funding is going? Not to stocking fish.

Thought maybe I could get out this morning before the waves got to big. Well that wasnt happening so I stayed in the harbor and did circles for a couple hours with nothing to show for it. Waves were big even at the entrance to the harbor so I was very limited in what I could do. Sorry to the charter if I was confusing you with my course. I wasnt comfortable trying to make the turn at the entrance to the harbor with those big rollers coming in so thats why I was turning early. I also tried communicating with my radio but couldnt hail anyone. Channels 11 and 9 right?

I think it’s time for a fishing report. I started at 8:30 am this morning and fished the harbor area. We had some good action with spoons on divers catching some kings and brown trout. The wind was strong out of the south and controlling boat speed was a challenge. Cooler water has moved in closer to our shoreline and this is generally better for the shallow water fishermen. This is the time of year to take advantage of this fishing right at our doorstep. Here is a video I recorded last season of what to expect at this time of year when hooking these big fish here in Sheboygan.

i don't see how you can contribute the poor fishing to cold water. we've had two years of "cold water" and poor fishing. this year a little better than last. do water temperatures play a role, absolutely. are they the main reason for the poor fishing, not even close. the only reason guys aren't crushing fish is because there aren't many in the lake. we had water set up favorably a few times this summer, and it was a far stretch from years ago. until the dnr feels comfortable stocking more, this is what lake michigan will be like for salmon fishing. the only question is if the alweifes will come back or not. if they don't...it's a done deal for salmon fish on lake mich.

Wow! You people are unbelievable. There are lots of fish out there and you're crying because you're not putting limits of fish in you're boat this year . It's been a down year due to very cold water. The fish are all over in the water column. Other years will be better. If you want to cry then cry to the dnr about stocking numbers if you think they're aren't any fish out there. Don't be surprised when they get a chuckle out of you're wining. Go fish somewhere else like the stocked trout ponds if you want to shoot fish out of a barrel.

my suggestion after 30 plus years of fishing would be to go to one rod per person like Minnesota has. It looks like we are our own best enemies. I think we now have more electronics on our boats than a ww11 battleship, and more rods than a large party boat. No wander we have a problem. I imagine the DNR has to try to work with the charter lobby, and the sport fisherman. Not easy!

Charters are averaging about a fish or two per person, so not exactly lighting it up

Then why is there over 3 million lake trout stocked lake wide?! If the DNR were interested in helping our fishery they wouldn't keep dumping millions of Lakers each year. If the DNR don't think lake trout have an affect on the alewife population, what is the reason for cutting any stockings?! Hate to break the news but I sure as hell ain't seeing any monster salmon or trout!

I did see the charters fishing hard, just like the rest of the boats and shore fisherman. Where were the fish? Why was there a guy from the DNR going around to every boat coming carrying a clipboard taking a tally of the amount of fish being caught. Never seen them doing that before. Perch numbers are down drastically in Illinois. With there being more and more fisherman every year due to population growth it is only inevitable that we will fish out all these lakes and rivers.

Pete- Apparently you must need a new fish locator because there are lots of fish out there in all different depths up and down the lakeshore. This has been one of the coldest consistent water temp summers that I can remember in 30+ years of fishing Lake Michigan. This along with more bait fish then I've seen in years on the graph can hinder your numbers of fish caught.The charter boats have done very well this summer catching fish. They do have a bad day just like the rest of us, but those guys fish hard every day and fish every day. As far as the dnr goes, the numbers are slashed due to bait fish populations consistently being down over the years has forced them to cut the numbers of stocked fish. This is just one year on many years that the alewife population is increased but not enough for the dnr to just throw more fish in the lake next year. If you do not Fish the leak in the future then I guess that leaves more fish for the rest of us. As far as I go I will be out there next season enjoying my time on the water.
