Luvtohunt&fish "Besides there won't be fish left to catch soon if these charters don't get some kind of regulation on either how many times they can go out or impose some kind of limits. Have a good day I'm done with my 2 cents."

That makes no sense what so ever. Charter boats are held to only being able to catch limits for the people with lisc on the boats. Each customer that buy a lisc has the same amount contributed to the fishery for stocking, research, ect. The customer that buys a lisc and goes fishing once a year and only catches 5 fish does more to contribute than the person that buys a lisc and goes 10 times catching a fish each time. Charter boats are under a lot of strict regulations including turning monthly trip logs into the DNR. They watch those numbers and use that to help determine the amount of fish that are out there. A lot of boats are contributing the heads of stocked fish this year including where they are caught to help the DNR figure out how to get the most bang for their buck for everyone on stocking.. Also piers are built for navigation so everyone including boats, shore fishermen have a right to use them. I personally don't fish the piers from boat or pier so I don't have a direct opinion on it. However do a little research about what you're talking about. I hope this helps to clear up your misunderstanding.

It’s been a busy August and the crew has been on the water for days now. We have been catching a good variety of Kings & Rainbows daily, while fishing anywhere from 60 to 300 feet of water straight out of the harbor. It doesn’t seem to matter where you fish lately, as these fish seem to be scattered all over under current conditions. Weighted flat lines trolling either silver or red rattlesnakes or Pro kings behind planner boards and wire diver rods with flasher flies, have been the most productive for us this week. This year is a real challenge because it has been difficult to see consistent fishing patterns from day to day. The surface water may be 70 degrees but it is still cold down deep. The good news is there seems to be plenty of good sized fish all around the port of Sheboygan this past week! Here is a short video of some of our fishing action and catches over the past couple of weeks:

Your two cents isn't worth a penny! Read the sign at the start of the pier or I can get a recording if you are not capable of reading. Trying to get the point across that they are meant solely for navigational purposes only. Not that complicated. If your don't like dealing with boats get yourself a boat and get off the pier. It's people like yourself that will ruin pier fishing for everyone. Fishing was great the last few days again, still wide spread. I hope everyone else gets the point. I have been fishing the pier for 20 years and there's only a few people that have problems over and over. Who's to blame the respectful fisherman or the undereducated beings

After the Southeast blow the water has cooled some and the fish have moved in. Kings were caught from the harbor mouth out to 70ft or so today along with the boats that are still doing well in 250ft and out. Its a great time to fish as you have many options on where to go and what species you want to catch. For the kings that are in the inside water plugs and mag spoons have been the best. Out deeper a mix of standard spoons and flasher flies have been best. Stop in and stock up on some of the huge assortment of plugs and Pro Kings new glow painted spoons have been on FIRE!!

Smokem there are boaters out there that don't have the common courtesy and think they have every right to troll close to piers! If that's the case why not just fish from the pier? I have lost several fish I had on due to boater cutting my line. One was a big fish during SAR back in the day and it pissed me off big time and I see why pier fisherman get mad. We don't walk on water and go and fish by them so show us the same respect stay away a 100 yards or more otherwise we will get a law pass saying no boat trolling should be within a 100 yards of what you call a navigation pier Lips Sealed I always wait till a boat passes before I cast. Besides there won't be fish left to catch soon if these charters don't get some kind of regulation on either how many times they can go out or impose some kind of limits. Have a good day I'm done with my 2 cents.

We took a couple friends out last evening that had not been on the big pond in 5 years. We found some fish in 275 fow straight out of the harbor. We went 5 for 10 catching all fish in the top 60. The largest king came on a F/F combo and all other fish came on spoons. ( Green & silver pro-kings ) doing the best. However we did not get bit in the last hour. Good luck to all.

Some people should do a little self educating before publicly posting there beliefs that are not facts. Simple fact is that the piers are for navigation purposes only, you are liable for yourself and are on the pier at your own risk. I am a pier fisherman as well as boat fisherman and there is common courtesy to an extent. Learn the law before you flap your lips, if uneducated people continue to cast at boats, yelling, hollering, or other inappropriate practices the privilege to be able to use the pier as a fishing structure could/ will be revoked. Ask around other ports and you will hear that fishing is being banned on our piers because of the negligence to the law and stupidity on pier fisherman's behalf. Besides that fish are beginning to stage and the first run is not far off. Fish are in the marina with few being caught. Have been catching fish from 70 ft to 420, with some great catches but semi-sporadic. plenty of cold water around

Fly … I lost $400 worth of spoons the same way in the rocks. These charter guys have no consequences when they do these things.

Is stand your ground legal while protecting yourself on the piers or rocks?

Happy August from the Happy Hooker! It has been a crazy summer but the big Kings are finally hungry often. The Lake Trout seem to have the late summer hunger as well.. 100 to 120 fow has been good with a varraity of flasher flies, spoons and plugs lately taking fish. Happy Hooker is excited to have a new partnership with Grizzly Coolers which brings a new cooler to fill on deck. Can you and your crew fill it? Let's give it a go!. If your summer has not had enough lake time in it, call us now and to make a Great Lake experience! Now is the time to fill the freezer with fish. Round up the crew for a great experience and live the lake life!

Fished today at the end of the south pier...caught on 10# brown on a glow spoon just as it was getting dark...lost another Brown close to shore lake side. Wanted to say thanks to "Phoenix" boat for the two foot wake swamping my gear when I was fishing just before the end of the pier.

Hi all,

Looking to come up Labor Day weekend for a trip. Have a small boat and have fished Two Rivers and Port Washington but never Sheboygan. Looking for some help with the nets. Looks like they are south of town. Looking for what water depths the nets are in or if we should just head north. Thanks for any help with that and where to watch the Badger game Saturday night.

we fished for 3.5 hours north of town last night, worked in 100 ft of water . ended 4 for 6 with 3 big four year olds. they are sure starting to look dark in color. every fish came on flasher fly combos or meat rigs. lake was a little choppy from the south. I think they might be starting to stage up for the big fall run in the next few days.
